Educational Technology Skills and Standards

  • Current day technology is a resource that can open opportunities for students and staff and proficiency with technology is increasingly necessary for everyday life at school, home and in the workplace.
    Educational technology skills for students are usually integrated into content areas, such as language arts, social studies, science, math, health, and the arts. Skills for educators are usually integrated into the teaching process as part of the instructional methods used to improve student learning.
    The Bainbridge Island School District aligns its teaching and learning activities with Goal Three of the Washington Basic Education Act that requires schools to integrate technology literacy and fluency in their curriculum. As curricular areas are reviewed, technology is integrated into the particular subject area. 
    The 2018 Educational Technology Standards, above, were based on the 2016 ISTE Standards for Students developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
