Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers and Administrators
NC Digital Learning Competencies

The teaching and learning process is a complex balance of content knowledge, pedagogical strategies, and technological resources. The Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers, informed by International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and the NC Professional Teaching Standards, are to be viewed within the context of the current North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards as extensions in relationship with the ways that digital technologies impact and affect schools.

The Digital Learning Competencies for Administrators are to be viewed within the context of the current North Carolina Standards for School Executives as extensions in relationship with the ways that digital technologies impact and affect schools. School and district administrators should use these competencies to improve their practice, build capacity in their staff, and drive student learning within their schools. Each Focus Area carries with it a subset of competencies that help to explain and ‘unpack’ the Focus Area.

Throughout all of the competencies is the underlying assumption of leadership and excellence with regard to digital citizenship. Administrators should model the behavior they expect from their staff and students and should continually seek to represent their schools and districts with the way they convey themselves both on and offline.

Teachers and administrators should use these competencies to improve their practice and drive student learning within their classrooms.

Information and Technology Essential Standards

NC Essential Standards for Information and Technology

These standards were developed using Bloom's Revised Technology and replace the Computer Skills and Information Literacy Standard Courses of Study.
These standards are critical building blocks for the education of our students. ITES represent the “must have” information and technology skills and knowledge that each student must have in order to achieve success at the next level. The standards are designed to be delivered by classroom teachers in all curricular areas and grade levels. As the ITES are taught throughout all classrooms and across all curricular areas, it is essential that classroom teachers collaborate with media coordinators in delivering this instruction. Media coordinators should be active participants in grade level and/or curricular area planning groups as these teams analyze student data, identify learning goals, plan and deliver instruction, and assess student progress.

NC Book Competitions/Awards

NC Children's Book Award

This program is sponsored by NCSLMA and the Children’s Services and School Librarian sections of the North Carolina Library Association. To register for the NCCBA program and to access the Activity Booklet, please go to https://ncslma.wildapricot.org/Book-Awards

The PICTURE BOOK CATEGORY honors a picture book, suitable for grades K-3. This award is intended to broaden students' awareness of current literature for youth, to promote reading aloud with students in the early grades as a means of introducing reading as a pleasure, and to recognize and honor children's favorite books and authors.

The purpose of the JUNIOR BOOK CATEGORY is to encourage students in grades 4 through 6 to become better acquainted with noteworthy writers of contemporary books, to broaden their awareness of literature as a means of personal satisfaction and as a lifelong pursuit, and to give recognition and honor to their favorite books and authors.

North Carolina Young Adult Book Award

The North Carolina Young Adult Book Award was started in 2008 to encourage reading at the middle and high school levels by involving students in the process of selecting and voting on the best books for their age group. Studies consistently show that reading for pleasure begins to wane as children reach middle school age and the goal of this award is to get these kids interested in reading good, current books that appeal to their age level. Each year, the committee selects ten books for middle school readers and ten books for high school readers to make up their two NC YA Book Award lists. Every book on the list is current fiction or nonfiction having been published within three years of award year. The titles are chosen from nominations submitted by students and media coordinators across the state. Throughout the school year, students are encouraged to read from the lists and think critically about what they read. Then, in March, they vote for their favorite book. After tallying the student votes a winner is announced in April and the new book lists are published.
