  • Apply the technology skills learned in previous lessons while using these technology practices: ethics, analysis, collaboration, research, creativity, connections, communication, and computational thinking.
  • Build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing theories, and pursuing answers and solutions
  • Use technology and other information tools to analyze and organize information
  • Demonstrate mastery of technology tools for accessing information and pursuing inquiry
  • Develop and refine a range of questions to frame the search for new understanding
  • Display initiative and engagement by posing questions and investigating answers beyond collection of superficial facts
  • Evaluate information for accuracy, validity, and suitability
  • Choose appropriate tools to analyze and organize information
  • Seek divergent perspectives during information gathering and assessment
  • Monitor information-seeking processes for effectiveness, and adapt as necessary
  • Demonstrate leadership and confidence by presenting ideas in both formal and informal settings
