Description:

Using project based instruction students are introduced to the principles of business in the 21st century while refreshing their keyboarding skills. This course should also help students to use computers effectively in their lives, thus providing a connection of computer science and business careers. In this course, middle school students build a knowledge base of computer applications, information systems, internet safety, 21st century skills, and business and computer science careers of the 21st century. Exposure to networking and programming will also be important threads in this course. Competencies for the co-curricular student organization Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) are integral components of the performance standards. FBLA activities should be incorporated throughout instructional strategies developed for the course.
