Course Details:

The Elementary Introduction 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 block based coding in offline environments in kindergarten through 2nd grade and will build upon those skills in online coding environments in grades 2–5. 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. The upper grades will complete research projects focused on adaptive technology, social media and/or robotics. The research projects require students to evaluate reliable and relevant websites, organize research, receive and implement feedback and produce a final product. Collaboration and communication are also focused on in each grade level as integrated language arts standards and the math practice standards can be found throughout the courses.
