The Elementary Intro to Technology courses will enable students to develop basic skills in computer science through engaging and age-appropriate content. The courses will expose students, within developmentally appropriate stages, to concepts such as problem solving and algorithms, security/privacy/copyright, computer programming basics and keyboarding skills. Students will learn skills in online coding environments. In addition to the computer skills, the Technology suite integrates standards from Social Studies, Health and Language Arts with topics in each grade about safety and health (online and offline), bullying/cyberbullying and being a responsible citizen/digital citizen. Students will complete a research project using Microsoft Word Online. The research projects require students to evaluate reliable and relevant websites, organize research, receive and implement feedback and produce a final product.
