Understand good digital citizenship and internet safety

In order to be able to use the computer effectively, students will need to understand the protections that exist on our computers to keep minors safe on the internet. Cyber safety, cyber security, and cyber ethics must be practiced by everyone as members of a global community.

Be able to describe the basic components, symbols, functions, and problems of a computer

Computers are only as useful as the amount of information that we know about them. To be able to improve your work, troubleshooting skills, saving to the “cloud”, and understanding your digital footprint will allow students to be prepared to live in a complex information rich world.
