Curriculum Subjects

TechLit classes are filled with practical subjects that we call specialties.

Students who are intrinsically motivated are excited to be in class, they're hungry to learn more, and they think about class when they're out of school. Creating intrinsic motivation is like lighting a fire that burns long after class is over.

Specialist educators are passionate role models who are obsessed with one specific skill. Specialists introduce the basics of a specific skill, from music production using a DAW to business lessons using spreadsheets.

Internet Security

It is important that our students are safe online. Every TechLit student has their own classroom account (offline in the classroom only), and they are responsible for managing their own password, profile and cloud file storage.

Touchtyping is a prerequisite to working efficiently on a desktop or laptop computer. The keyboard layout that we use isn't going away anytime soon, because it's still the fastest way to communicate and record information.
