Essential Standards: Information and Technology Skills and Computer/Technology Skills SCOS
Develop awareness and foundations of required technology standards and competencies.
Describes the progressive development of knowledge and skills in six strands:
“The Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study involves the development of skills over time. Computer/Technology Skills proficiency is not an end in itself, but lays a foundation for lifelong learning.”
ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) started bridging the gap with their National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) with “the purpose of leveraging the use of technology in K-12 education to enable students to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly digital society”.
The current version of NETS for Students (NETSS) consists of performance indicators that “indicates and outlines what the student should be able to achieve within technological literacy by the completion of a school year.”
The current versions of NETS for Teachers (NETST) include performance indicators that are designed to “provide teachers with the effective tools so they are able to engage their students, improve learning environments and their own professional practice as well as provide a positive model for their school community.”
