Digital Learning Standards for Students
New Jersey has digital learning standards for students.
New Jersey’s Technology Standards consist of 8.1 Educational Technology and 8.2 Technology, Engineering, Design and Computational Thinking, which work symbiotically to provide students with the necessary skills for college and career readiness. The New Jersey Student Learning Standard (NJSLS) 8.1’s goal is for all students to use digital tools to access, manage, evaluate, and synthesize information in order to solve problems individually and collaborate and create and communicate knowledge. NJSLS 8.2 focuses on all students developing an understanding of the nature and impact of technology, engineering, technological design, computational thinking and the designed world as they relate to the individual, global society, and the environment. Review is currently in process to refresh these standards.
