State Digital Learning Plan
North Carolina has a state digital learning plan.
The North Carolina Digital Learning Plan provides recommendations for state action that support K-12 schools as they transition to digital age learning. Both the NC Digital Learning Plan and the Future Ready Framework provide districts with resources to ensure that local technology and digital learning plans align with and support instructional best practices, are implemented by highly skilled teachers, and lead to personalized learning experiences for all students.
State Requirements for District Digital Learning Plans
North Carolina does not have requirements for districts for digital learning plans.
North Carolina does not require district level educational technology plans, but strongly encourages technology planning. It is recommended that districts include technology planning as part of the strategic plan.
Digital Learning Standards for Students
North Carolina has digital learning standards for students.
During 2009, Digital Teaching and Learning staff members worked with LEA representatives and other DPI staff to create Information and Technology Essential Standards (ITES). ITES represent the “must have” information and technology skills and knowledge that each student must have in order to achieve success at the next level. The standards are designed to be delivered by classroom teachers in all curricular areas and grade levels. The ITES are currently undergoing revision based on the North Carolina standards revision process.
