Parkway Tech Proficiencies

The following "I can ..." statements are general ideas of what technology skills students in this grade range should have.  These skills should be able to be applied in many curricular areas, supporting and enriching activities that meet curricular goals.  Each "I can ..." statement is followed by a list of possible examples, listed here in blue.   These proficiencies lean heavily upon the work done by ISTE in their NETS for Students, revisions 2002 and 2007.
