Minnesota Technology Standards

Currently, the state of Minnesota does not have separate K-12 standards for technology literacy. The Department of Education's standards are in the following areas: arts, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Within each of these areas, technology literacy may be included; however there are no spearate technology standards or an explicit technology literacy initiative for K-12.

The standards themselves can be linked to directly here.

An example of how technology literacy is directly connected to the individual standards can be found under the Grade 1 Writing Standard in Language Arts: Handwriting and Word Processing. However, this standard simply states that "The student will improve his/her handwriting." Notice that although the Sub-Strand includes word processing, the standard itself does not mention technology. "Begin acquiring keyboarding skills" is not included in the benchmarks until Grade 3.
