Washington Educational Technology Learning Standards

(View Complete Item Description)

In this update to the 2008 standards, Washington is adopting the 2016 Technology Standards for Students released by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). These standards were developed collaboratively with teachers, administrators, subject matter experts, state and national associations, and stakeholders in educational technology. Teams of Washington teachers, technology integration specialists, and teacher-librarians have reviewed these standards to ensure they effectively meet the needs of Washington students. These standards emphasize the ways technology can be used to amplify and transform learning and teaching, and they resonate with our state’s aspiration to empower connected learners in a connected world. In addition, they complement statewide efforts to enhance instruction in digital citizenship and media literacy, which are critical elements of preparing our students for careers, post-secondary aspirations, and beyond.
