Technology Standards


Marylandís Adult Education Technology Standards

The Maryland Adult Education Learner Technology Standards are designed to guide teachers in designing instruction that is supported by technology. The Adult Education Teacher Technology Standards specify what a teacher should know and be able to do to implement the full range of adult learner technology standards in instruction. The teacher standards are meant to provide a guide and ensure consistency across programs and classrooms. While the standards guide instruction, the integration of technology will be individualized to achieve learner and local program goals.


Adult Ed Technology Standards for Arizona

Arizona has developed a list of technology standards for teachers that includes a rubric and sample activities to illustrate many of the items.

Computer Literacy Assessment

This is a teacher self-assessment tool to evaluate computer and Internet skills. You can view the content of the assessment by creating a free account.
