    Computer/Technology Standards of Learning

Introduction

    Technology Literate

    …to possess technology skills that support learning,

    personal productivity, decision making, and daily life.

     Six-Year Educational Technology Plan for Virginia, 2003-2009

    The Computer/Technology Standards of Learning identify and define the

    progressive development of essential knowledge and skills necessary for students to

    access, evaluate, use and create information using technology. They provide a framework

    for technology literacy and demonstrate a progression from physical manipulation skills

    for the use of technology, to intellectual skills necessary for information use, to skills

    needed for working responsibly and productively within groups. Computer/technology

    proficiency is not an end in itself, but lays the foundation for continuous learning. The

    focus is on learning using technology rather than learning about technology.

    To become technologically proficient, the student must develop the skills through

    integrated activities in all content areas K-12, rather than through one specific course.

    These skills should be introduced and refined collaboratively by all K-12 teachers as an

    integral part of the learning process. Teachers can use these standards as guidelines for

    planning technology-based activities in which students achieve success in learning,

    communication, and prepare them to meet the challenges of today’s technology-rich

    world of work.
