What 21st Century Kindergarteners Know


Kindergartners at PS 130 are using technology in the classroom to build skills to operate computer-based resources according to the National Ed-Tech Standards (NETS).  In the process they are building the fundamentals of media literacy — picking up related vocabulary, and getting a handle on the basics of what it means to communicate and play on the Internet.

This video includes tutorials recorded by 4 K classes to help themselves remember, and other students and teachers out there know what they’re learning.  It’s awful cute.
