One of the things I've been thinking a lot about is: What am I going to teach these 3-6th graders next year? I mean, I know what I've been able to do for my class this year and I expect to contnue to expand and add more tech integrated assignments for third grade, no sweat. I am an expert on third grade content for sure, but not the other grade level standards. So where do I start?
Like a good teacher, I went to the standards. ISTE has standards for students and teachers that outline how teachers should use technology with their students, but they are general. I know CUSD has technology standards that outline what the students should be able to do at each grade. After a quick search, I ran into a wonderful resource: CUSD Educational Technology that has specific standards for grades K-5 and lots of other links for resources for internet safety and digital citizenship. The standards for each grade level are linked to the ISTE standards for students.
This will be a helpful resource for me as I sit down with grade level teams this summer to plan my curriculum!
