The Digital Literacy and Computer Science standards will enable students to employ cognitive and technical skills to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information via existing and emerging technologies. The standards introduce the study of computers and algorithmic processes, including computer science principles, hardware and software designs, applications, networks, and societal impact, and lay the groundwork for students to use their increasingly valuable knowledge and skills in college and careers.
Students are already using digital tools outside of school to create, communicate, and collaborate. These tools provide powerful, engaging learning experiences which pervade their daily lives and impact the future, and we must give our students everything they need to increase their competence. Technological understanding prepares students to be productive citizens. For Alabama’s students to be competitive in a global marketplace, we must ensure that they have the skills they need to thrive in the digital age.
