Model Curriculum for Technology
In 2017, the State Board of Education approved revisions to the Ohio Learning Standards for Technology. The technology standards define what students need to know and be able to do to succeed in a technological world. Ohio’s Model Curriculum helps educators better understand the knowledge and skills called for in Ohio’s Learning Standards.
Each Child, Our Future
is Ohio’s five-year strategic plan to ensure each student enjoys a bright future thanks to an excellent preK-12 education experience. The plan’s vision is for each child to be challenged
to discover and learn, prepared
to pursue a fulfilling post-high school path and empowered
to become a resilient, lifelong learner who contributes to society.
The strategic plan also acknowledges a major education policy shift around technology. The strategic use of technology now is recognized as foundational and just as important as mathematics and English language arts, from which all other learning is built.
The strategic plan details four equal learning domains that contribute to the holistic success of each child. These include foundational knowledge and skills, well-rounded content, leadership and reasoning skills and social-emotional learning. Ohio’s Learning Standards for Technology support each of the four domains.
About the Model Curriculum
Ohio's Model Curriculum offers local educators in-depth guidance about Ohio’s Learning Standards. It also explains related skills and knowledge students are to learn in each grade and course. The purpose of Ohio’s Model Curriculum is to provide clarity to the standards, as well as information to assist educators in planning and implementing their local curricula. The model curriculum is not a complete curriculum nor is it mandated for use.
Through a stakeholder-driven process, educators from across the state volunteered to serve on teams to develop Ohio’s Model Curriculum for Technology for grades kindergarten through 12. These educators represent various geographic areas and types of schools. Therefore, the model curriculum reflects best practices and the expertise of many Ohio educators.
