The technology resource program incorporates 21st Century skills with academic curriculum. Computer technologies are utilized as a tool for students to use in creating, communicating, making connections, researching, and developing problem-solving skills.
Never are computer skills taught in isolation; students acquire fluency with technology concepts, applications, terminologies and troubleshooting through working on projects and assignments that enhance and extend classroom learning.
All technology lessons are designed to help students meet ISTE’s NETS (National Educational Technology Standards) for students.
The NETS provide a foundation for “what students should know and be able to do to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly digital world.”
- Creativity and Innovation
- Communication and Collaboration
- Research and Information Fluency
- Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
- Digital Citizenship
- Technology Operations and Concepts
Technology lessons and student work samples are showcased on the MJGDS 21st Century Learning Blog.
