Interested in learning more about the Information and Technology Essential Standards for North Carolina? The Essential Standards are broken down into 5 strands: Sources of Information, Informational Text, Technology as a Tool, Research Process, Safety and Ethical Issues. When your child visits Technology and Media for their special we are working hard to integrate these objectives and reinforce concepts already being taught in your child's regular classroom. Feel free to follow the ITES link below to see the specific objectives that align with each strand.
