Bethany Christian School Expands Futurekids’ Real Journeys in Technology Curriculum

Futurekids announced today that Bethany Christian School has expanded the Real Journeys in Technology curriculum to more grades in its progressive learning program. Real Journeys in Technology is built around a scope and sequence of 500 learning objectives in ten key technology areas, and meets or exceeds state and ISTE NETS standards and is a full-year's curriculum containing thirty-five interactive project-based adventure-themed lessons.

“We started the program last year with two curriculum levels, and this year we’re expanding to even more levels,” commented Trish King, Computer Teacher for Bethany Christian School. “The reaction from our students has been terrific. They really like the workbook lessons. We love the way it brings technology into our core subjects like science, social studies and language arts. Just the other day we used a lesson plan to track Hurricane Dean. We know we’re helping our students learn technology in a way that will have a positive impact their entire lives.”

Dzana Homan, CEO of Futurekids, welcomed the expanded partnership with Bethany Christian School. “We’re delighted they find the Real Journeys curriculum so engaging,” states Ms. Homan. “They’re committed to giving their students the very latest 21st century technology skills, and it compliments their values-based teaching.”

Using projects that are linked with language arts, social studies, math and science content, Real Journeys in Technology promotes active student learning for the 21st century classroom. Areas covered include operating environments, databases, word processing, spreadsheets, graphics, Internet, multimedia, programming, desktop publishing and applied technology.
