Vermont State Board of Education Adopts Updated Technology Standards for Students

27 November 2017

BARRE, VT. – At its November meeting, the Vermont State Board of Education unanimously adopted the International Standards for Technology Education (ISTE) Standards for student learning. The adoption of this framework is aligned with the state’s Education Quality Standards (EQS). These standards outline what Vermont students should know and be able to do with respect to information technology, and will guide and inform the work of our schools as they prepare students for college and careers that have been dramatically transformed by information technology.

These new and updated ISTE standards replace outdated standards, and will help bring our education in line with innovations and best practice in use of information technologies in schools.

“The State Board of Education has been updating our adopted standards to be more in line with the requirements of proficiency-based graduation,” said State Board of Education Chair Krista Huling. “The ISTE student standards will help assist all educators in the goal of how to deliver and assess progress through various academic areas. These standards also strengthen Vermont's commitment to citizenship in the digital age at a time when civic engagement at all levels are key to strengthening our democracy.”
