To reach that objective, students must first be taught the basic skills such as use of the mouse, keyboarding, and file management. The lower grades will have a greater focus on these skills, as well as on the use of educational software for learning and enjoyment. As students reach the upper elementary level, the focus shifts to the mastery of productivity software such as word processors and spreadsheets, using inter-disciplinary projects tied to the content areas. In the upper grades the focus shifts to more advanced projects incorporating Internet research. Finally, a key objective is to provide students with the digital literacy and critical thinking skills required to become “information consumers” who continually evaluate content on the Internet.
