Foundation Standards for All Students
technology foundation standards for students are divided into six
broad categories. Standards within each category are to be introduced,
reinforced, and mastered by students. These categories provide a
framework for linking performance indicators within the Profiles
for Technology Literate Students to the standards. Teachers can
use these standards and profiles as guidelines for planning technology-based
activities in which students achieve success in learning, communication,
and life skills.
