About Our Homeschool Program

More than teaching we emphasize learn by doing, exploring, experimenting and getting stumped! We understand every child is different and each one learns in their unique way.  How & why did Bell visualize the telephone? We want to inspire your child to be the inventor, the problem solver, the innovator the leader for our world tomorrow.

 

Computerwisekids follows the ISTE standards of Technology Education and 2018 CA Computer Science Standards. Our teaching

techniques are unique by design. We teach kids the basic skills needed to interact with a computer, iPad, Chrome books.  The lesson plans & software emphasizes the individual child's initiative and independence, allowing them to progress through an orderly series of structured learning activities at their own pace.

We offer four sessions of 8 week durations during the school year.  Students work at their own pace and depending on their knowledge they will learn more than expected in class.

Want a class that we are not offering or you missed the session? Build a group of minimum 10 students and we will run a class for your group. Email HS@computerwisekids or Call 818.206.2628 for information.
