Thank you very much for your help on this. Kindest regards Richard Cole
My name is Corey Norton and I coordinate a new youth initiative in Connecticut called the CT Youth TechCorps.CYTC is a statewide network of educators,students, businesses, government and community organizations committed to improving the technology competence of CT's youth.As part of our mission we are doing research on K-12 Student Technology Competencies.Couldyou please help me collect relevant information and letting me know if your state has developed a set of K-12 Technology Competency Guidelines or Standards.I am also particularly interested in how you assess standards, i.e. through evaluations at certain grade levels, credentials, etc. I would also be very appreciative if you could help me learn a bit about the process you experienced as your state developed the standards. Who proposed/developed them? Did the process involve legislative/ statutory action? As I collect information from the states I would be happy to post it on our website at ttp://www.cytc.org if you all would find it useful to access such information from one location.
Thank you all for you kind assistance. Corey Norton Program Coordinator CT Youth TechCorps Interested in Kids and Technology?
