Elementary Technology Grade 5

Credits: 1.0
Estimated Completion Time: 36 weeks


The FLVS Elementary Technology Fifth Grade course enables students to develop basic skills in computer science through engaging and age-appropriate content. The courses will expose students, within developmentally appropriate stages, to concepts such as problem-solving, algorithms, security/privacy/copyright, computer programming basics, and keyboarding skills. Students learn block-based coding in offline environments that build upon skills developed in previous grades. In addition to the computer skills, the Technology suite integrates standards from Social Studies, Health and Language Arts with topics in each grade about safety and health (online and offline), bullying/cyberbullying and being a responsible citizen/digital citizen. The upper grades will complete research focused on adaptive technology, social media and/or robotics. The research will require students to evaluate reliable and relevant websites, organize data, receive and implement feedback, and produce a digital artifact.
