Remember when this was the norm?
I remember spending hours in libraries, doing research, looking for articles, making notes on index cards.
Now, I can't remember the last time I physically went to a library, even though I cherish and make good use of my memberships at multiple university and public libraries. Just like I can't remember the last time I went to a physical bank branch to cash a check.
We are changing every aspect of our lives with the use of technology. Thus, it is no wonder that forward-thinking schools are ensuring that their graduates have strong skills in educational technology.
Washington State's Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) is in the process of updating the K-12 academic learning standards for educational technology, working to ensure that our students are fluent and literate in the use of technology. Relevant Strategies was fortunate to be able to help out by coordinating a bias and cultural sensitivity review of the draft standards. A team of diversity experts provided their feedback and advice on the draft standards. We extend a thanks to our expert panel and our OSPI partners, and best wishes on the public comment period and next steps in the standards adoption process.
