DIGITAL LITERACY and COMPUTER-ASSISTED INSTRUCTION

West Harvey-Dixmoor School District 147 is committed to an educational program which recognizes the importance of technology in our present and future society.

The Digital Literacy and Blended Instruction programs in the district are supported by Title I, Title II, Title V, and other government funded programs.
 
As a district, we use the National Educational Technology Standards for teachers (NETS) developed by ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education).  The ISTE NETS for Students (NETS•S), the ISTE NETS for Teachers (NETS•T), and the ISTE NETS for Administrators (NETS•A) define the fundamental concepts, knowledge, skills, and attitudes for applying technology in educational settings.
 
Based on the ISTE Standards for Student (NETS-S) students should be able to perform in each of these four areas:
 
   *Creativity and Innovation: Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and    develop innovative products and processes using technology.
 
   *Communication and Collaboration: Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others.
 
   *Research and Information Fluency: Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.
 
   *Critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making: Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using   appropriate digital tools and resources.
 
Student access to digital tools is possible in a variety of settings: classrooms, computer labs, and learning resource centers.  Grades 3 through 8 share grade level carts of IPads and Chromebooks.  Grades K through 2 share Ipad carts.  All students have access to Apple Desktop computer labs and laptop carts.  Every classroom is outfitted with a state of the art, interactive
