§126.1. Essential Knowledge and Skills for Technology Applications, Elementary.



§126.2. Technology Applications, Kindergarten-Grade 2.

(a) Introduction.

(1) The technology applications curriculum has four strands: foundations, information acquisition, work in solving problems, and communication.

(2) Through the study of technology applications foundations, including technology-related terms, concepts, and data input strategies, students learn to make informed decisions about technologies and their applications.
