Technology’s goals are to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers whose technological skills enable them to be digital citizens in the ever-changing world.  Starting in Kindergarten, students are taught keyboarding, exposed to the Internet as a tool for content and communication, learn basic computer components and operations as well as begin to code which develops vital engineering skills.  As a multi-disciplinary field, technology is embedded into the educational process rather than standing alone.  Authentic application impacts the learning thereby allowing students to explore, learn, and assimilate information.  By Grade 6, students have mastered many software applications, chosen appropriate resources and apps for academic tasks, demonstrated proper citation and copyright procedures, administered an online community, created programs, collaborated digitally with teachers and peers, and articulated security/privacy concerns of the Internet.
