    I've created a cross walk between our district's technology competencies and the ISTE standards.  Now I'm trying to create a three year plan to implement this document into our PreK-12 curriculum areas.  We have a computer class in PreK-5 and a ten week technology applications course in 6th grade, so much of these competencies will need to be included in the core classrooms.
    I'm wondering if anyone has created an implementation plan that they're willing to share?  I'm thinking my first step is to identify the foundation skills and make sure that instruction is taking place.  I'd love to hear how other districts are accomplishing this!  Thanks in advance for your input.

    Hi Margaret - I am not sure if this will help, but WI has broken down competencies by grade band.  Maybe this is what you did first, but I wanted to share this just in case.
    Have a great day!

    Beth, Thanks for sharing how WI is connecting ISTE Standards to foundation knowledge and skills in K-12 classrooms across all content areas. Your vision provides clear focus on"learning with information and technology rather than learning about information and technology"- and implementing "digital tools can enhance student learning as they connect efforts to identify what students should know and be able to do as well as help students and educators assess progress toward achieving academic goals"
    Can you share examples of how districts, schools and programs are assessing how well students are making progress and mastering? Thanks!

    That is a good question! I have heard of implementation in several ways:
    Teachers use lesson plan formats that include these standards so planning intentional integration happens.
    Library media specialist work on a Standard a month with students.

    I still have not seen a deliberate and accountable system used in a district where leadership is asking for evidence of these standards. That will come- hopefully sooner than later!
