Communication - Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students will:

                  • Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats. 
                  • Develop cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with learners of other cultures.
