Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Literacy

The Minimum Standards for School Approval, Ed 306.42, contain the minimum requirements districts must use in order to establish a K-12 ICT Literacy program for their students. The standards require all K-12 students to have opportunities to use and learn about a wide variety of digital tools through an integrated approach, in which the learning of content standards is enhanced through the use of technology. The Office of Educational Technology reviews and supports districts and schools as they enhance and update their ICT Literacy Programs.
