I. Technology Operations and Concepts.

Teachers demonstrate a sound understanding of technology operations and concepts. Teachers:

A. Demonstrate introductory knowledge, skills, and understanding of concepts related to technology (as described in the ISTE National Education Technology Standards for Students).
B. Demonstrate continual growth in technology knowledge and skills to stay abreast of current and emerging technologies.

Reflection: I demonstrated a proficient understanding of strand1 by creating a concept map on Inspiration.  Through using this program i was able to give a visual web so that students could make connections of big ideas, or main themes.  I found the Inspiration program is to use and maneuver around, and it can be very beneficial for the lower grade levels.  I learned that even using technology with the lower grades, can be very beneficial to all students.
