Here are the standards on which your child is working in grade 6 Computer Applications.

2. Digital Citizen (this is ongoing within the semester)


Students recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world, and they act and model in ways that are safe, legal and ethical. Students:


a. cultivate and manage their digital identity and reputation and are aware of the permanence of their actions in the digital world.


b. engage in positive, safe, legal and ethical behavior when using technology, including social interactions online or when using networked devices.


c. demonstrate an understanding of and respect for the rights and obligations of using and sharing intellectual property.


d. manage their personal data to maintain digital privacy and security and are aware of data-collection technology used to track their navigation online.


5. Computational Thinker


Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions. Students:


a. formulate problem definitions suited for technology-assisted methods such as data analysis, abstract models and algorithmic thinking in exploring and finding solutions.


b. collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.


c. break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.


D.understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.

Here are the standards on which you child is working in grade 7 App Creators

KS 1.3A1 Recognize that computational thinking can be applied in multiple disciplines.

LO 1.3A Apply computational thinking to solve problems.

We encourage conversations about these standards so you can monitor your child's progress and understanding more effectively. Should you have any questions, please email your student's teacher by clicking on the Staff link on our Edgewood Middle School webpage, scroll down the list to locate the teacher and click on their email address, next to their photo. 


These standards will change as we move on to new material. Please check back often
