New Technology TEKS for Students

Texas has adopted new Technology TEKS beginning in the 2012 school year.  It defines the technology literacy and integration requirements for students, teachers, and librarians. The new standards are:
  • Creative thinking and innovative processes to construct knowledge and develop products
  • Communicate and collaborate both locally and globally to reinforce and promote learning
  • Research and information fluency includes the acquisition and evaluation of digital content
  • Develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills by collecting, analyzing, and reporting digital information
  • Digital citizenship by behaving responsibly while using technology tools and resources
  • The study of technology operations and concepts, students learn technology related terms, concepts, and data input strategies
These technology standards help to ensure that students and educators gain and apply critical 21st Century digital knowledge and skills across the curriculum. Click here for a full description of the new Technology TEKS.
