Technology in good time
Waldorf teachers believe that technology has a time and place, but young children should learn from human beings and real experiences. Writing out a lesson with one’s hand gives children spatial awareness and improves fine motor skills. Waldorf student develops important capacities of imagination, creativity, flexibility of thought and critical thinking skills by not depending upon computers to do their work at this age. Computers are introduced in the eighth grade when students begin learning how to use computers as a tool. They learn the beginning stages of binary coding and how to use it to create images.
