Curriculum & Requirements

Today, K-12 classrooms are equipped with technologies that promise higher student engagement, greater access to content knowledge, and effective, efficient learning. However, technology alone cannot transform student learning. Teachers today require the knowledge and skills to effectively integrate technology into their teaching practice. The imperatives of equal access, equal opportunity, and pedagogical congruence compel a mindful and efficacious integration of technology into the 21st century classroom. As technology has become enmeshed into our teaching and learning there is also an emerging need to engage students in the civic responsibilities and proper academic duties required within the digital medium.
