21st Century Skills and Standards
In this assignment, you need to think about 21st century support systems, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and International Society for Technology in Education Student (Links to an external site.)

As needed, refer to your program learning outcomes (PLOs) list (MACI, MAECEL, MAED, MASE, MATLT).
