1.2. Foundational Operations, Knowledge and Concepts

1.2.1. In order to effecitvely use technology, students must be able to understand the implications and reality of technology in our modern world. By learning the basic of the techonological world such as foundation operations, or concepts, then they have the knowledge to know how to properly and effectively use the tools in a safe and ethical way.

1.3. Process for Productivity

1.3.1. In order to fully utilize tools to their capabilities, students and teachers must know the basics of how individual tools work, as it is impossible to be productive if you don't have the knowledge to use a tool properly.

1.4. How to determine which tools, techniques or process to use and when
