Common Core State Standards Students use technology and digital media strategically and capably – “Students employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. They tailor their searches online to acquire useful information efficiently, and they integrate what they learn using technology with what they learn offline. They are familiar with the strengths and limitations of various technological tools and mediums and can select and use those best suited to their communication goals.” “Using technology” is found many places throughout the specific content area goals.
Our Essential Question: How do we enable our students to actively engage in using technology for individual and collaborative learning activities? How can teachers accomplish this?
