Middle School Instructional Technology
During the Middle Grade years, technology should be interwoven into the existing curriculum with teachers and students making use of electronic resources to explore subject area topics. Google Apps are provided to allow seamless communication and collaboration among students and teachers. These applications (including search, Docs, the Presentation tool, E-mail, and Sites) should form the technology platform for students to master the new Information and Technology Essential Skills. Please see the recommended resources for teaching the Essential Standards for Information and Technology middle school level.
