Englewood School District Comprehensive Plan for Educational Technology and Information Literacy.
Colorado State Department of Education
Educational Technology/Information Literacy should be considered the "fourth R" in today's educational system. After reading, writing, and arithmetic, the use of information technology is the 'reality' that faces students upon graduation and is often a barrier to entering the workforce. Only after schools begin to build high quality Educational Technology/Information Literacy Learning systems, with the goal of creating a technologically competent and information literate graduate, will students be fully prepared to meet the challenges and expectations of our information rich society. The continued success and quality of American public education depends on the collective ability to close the gap between the enormous amount of accessible information and technology's mere presence, and its effective integration into the curriculum to enhance student performance and deliver the skills necessary for the new millennium. This comprehensive plan represents a living document that clearly articulates plans to increase the capacity of students and teachers by creating a coherent call to action. This document contains 3 appendices: (1) student grade level expectations; (2) district data collection tools; and (3) exemplars.
