Technology Standards and Benchmarks for Students
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Technology Standards and Benchmarks define the essential knowledge and skills that students should acquire: basic operations and concepts, social and ethical issues; and productivity, communication, and research tools. The strength of these standards is the cohesion they bring to the K-12 curriculum. This standards document is not a curriculum guide. It does not reflect the order, method, or time spent teaching any topic at a grade level. Instead, these standards reflect the nature of the discipline and are intended to drive curriculum and assessment decisions. The technology skills in this document are intended to be an integral tool for learning and communicating within the context of the academic areas, not skills to be taught in isolation. Technology is a powerful tool with enormous potential to provide learning opportunities to all students. The wise use of technology can enrich learning environments and enable students to achieve greater skills and learn in ways not previously possible. Technology should become an integral part of how the classroom functions - as accessible as all other classroom tools. Because of the rapid evolution in technology, this document must remain dynamic.
