Minnesota K-8 principals responded to an online survey regarding important computing competencies for teachers based on the ISTE and Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) standards in summer 2014 for a dissertation study. Results showed the most important software and Internet topics in elementary schools, middle schools, and junior high schools.

Recommendations for educators and Minnesota resources for emerging technologies will be discussed.
