Educational Technology Best Practices

ISTE Standards for Educators “Technology must be like oxygen: ubiquitous, necessary and invisible.” Chris Lehmen The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Educators describe best practices for implementing and supporting technology integration in our schools and classrooms. These standards provide a roadmap for educators to support their instruction , collaboration , and productivity . In Canyons School District, we apply these ISTE Standards not only to support technology integration, but to also support the CSD MTSS Framework and the CSD Educational Technology Mission Statement.

CSD Educational Technology Mission Statement: • Implement Canvas, CSDDocs, and other educational technology tools to support the MTSS Framework. • Build teacher capacity in their knowledge of technology-facilitated pedagogy. • Provide high-quality levels of technology-related professional development. • Provide technology access and improve its academic use by students, including at-home use. • Maintain the infrastructure needed to meet technology needs.
