Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy ISTE Seal of Alignment Renewed

Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy ISTE Seal of Alignment Renewed

Being a digital learner and using technology in the classroom is no longer optional. Teachers and students need a framework for rethinking education, adapting to a constantly changing technological landscape, and preparing to enter an increasingly global economy. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) recognizes this and have developed the ISTE Standards, which are a roadmap for educators worldwide as they navigate decisions about curriculum, instruction, professional learning, and technology. The standards guide educators through the myriad of decisions they face related to the effective integration of educational technology to truly transform both learning and teaching.

This is an incredibly important shift in the education landscape, which is why we are proud to announce Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy has received renewed approval from ISTE for their Seal of Alignment, effective through 2019. This approval recognizes EdOptions Academy as a highly effective resource to support students in successfully acquiring knowledge and skills that are foundational to the globally recognized ISTE Standards. EdOptions Academy is a fully accredited, virtual school solution that allows schools and districts to enhance, expand, and extend their program offerings to meet the diverse needs of their students.

ISTE reviewers make their determination for the Readiness Seal of Alignment based on the following standards and indicators for students:

  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Technology Operations and Concepts

Edmentum and EdOptions Academy are proud to continue our partnership with ISTE by providing research-based, rigorous, and meaningful resources for students and teachers.
