Computing Overview

Purple Mash is an online suite of creativity-focused lessons and activities teachers can assign as individual or shared projects. The platform itself is animated, colorful, and bursting with creativity. Projects feature creative, hands-on elements, such as drawing, playing games, recording videos, creating animations or games, coding, and skill-building activities. There's also a Mini-Mash version for our younger children that focuses on school readiness activities.

Purple Mash curriculum also has an emphasis on internet safety. The software includes a variety of resources and tools designed to help students stay safe online. These resources include online safety posters and interactive quizzes that teach students about the importance of safe internet use.
