Elementary-school computer teacher Mary Beth Hertz highlights a table she created to showcase the technology abilities students should demonstrate in each grade. In kindergarten, students should be able to turn on a computer and use a one-word log-in. Beginning in second grade, students should be able to type, and in third grade they should be able to save a file, Hertz writes. By fourth grade, students should know basic online etiquette, and, in sixth grade, they should be able to collaborate with their peers on a digital project.
