Technology in the Maryland Content Standards

The Maryland State Content Standards, which include the Learning Outcomes, Core Learning Goals and Skills for Success, specify what students in kindergarten through 12 th grade need to know and be able to do in four content areas: English/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Included in these standards are expectations for how technology can and should be used to support student learning and instruction. Focusing on the standards listed below will help move Maryland closer to the vision of improving student learning through the meaningful integration of technology into classrooms and schools.
