Last Monday, illustrator Joseph Santiago of Saint James Studios and his business partner Yamilca visited their son's fifth grade Core class with Stefanie Trepper to give a lesson on a crucial aspect of the filmmaking process: storyboarding.
The Prep School Technology Department believes everyone should have a comfort and adeptness with the vital skills of the 21st century. These skills include coding, robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality, graphic design and an understanding of how technology fits into larger society.
The goal of the program is to develop in our students a “computational mindset." This mindset teaches them how to think creatively and algorithmically while also learning to abstract problems and use technology to collaborate and communicate. Students learn best through self-paced learning and freedom for creativity. Students are asked to be curious and expected to be responsibly engaged with technology and social media.
