These ICT Literacy standards are based on standards and policy recommendations related to educational technology from various sources over the past decade. Those standards and their originating organizations are listed here:

International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has a wealth of resources on their website. They spearheaded the creation of the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS-S).

NH Society for Technology in Education (NHSTE) is our state’s affiliate organization of ISTE.

ICT Digital Literacy Portal has many resources on the topic and an active community of online speakers, forums, and discussions.

Partnership for 21st Century Skills has a wealth of information about ICT skills. One of their initiatives is the creation of 21st Century skills maps in English, geography, math, science, and social studies to show concrete examples of how ICT literacy can be integrated into core subjects.

The Second Information Technology in Education Study: Module 2 (SITES: M2) is an international study of innovative pedagogical practices that use information and communication technology (ICT).

American Association of School Librarians (ALA) has several resources related to the Information Literacy.

New Hampshire Educational Media Association (NHEMA) is our state’s association of school librarians.

International Technology Education Association (ITEA) developed the Standards for Technological Literacy.

Here are additional resources for use in developing ICT Literacy Programs:

21 Things 4 Students – The project is supported by a grant from the REMC Association of Michigan and maintained by a team from three Intermediate School Districts in Michigan (Shiawassee, Ingham, and Macomb). It was created as an educational and online resource to help students improve their technology proficiency as they prepare for success in the 21st century. This project was specifically developed to provide districts and classroom teachers with resources to help students meet or exceed the 8th grade technology proficiency requirements in Michigan. The development of this resource came at the request of teachers using the initial site.

TechYES is a program created for technology literacy certification, which could be incorporated into a middle school ICT course to provide both course content and end-of-course assessment.

International Computer Driving License (ICDL) – Provides a credential program for students.

IT Pathway Program – Provides curriculum resources for Information Technology studies in middle through high school. This program was developed by several NH educators as part of a Career Pathways grant. Two courses, “IT and Me” and “IT and Me Works”, are particularly useful for NH districts developing ICT Literacy Programs.
