California Board of Education Adopts Digital Learning Integration & Standards Guidance

By Sophia Mendoza, Director - L.A. Unified Division of Instruction, Instructional Technology Initiative

As we approach the annual celebration of Digital Citizenship Week in L.A. Unified and across the nation, there is a new resource now available to support California schools in re-envisioning their education system and how they can take steps to build more equitable learning environments for educators and students using technology. In June of 2021, the Digital Learning Integration and Standards Guidance was adopted by the California Board of Education in an effort to help educators connect decades of research on digital learning and explore how to leverage sound instructional technology practices to support in-person and online instruction.

This new resource is designed to support all California educator’s effective use of technology to support student learning and address critical areas of instruction. The guidance includes strategies to effectively integrate digital learning in an in-person classroom setting and a virtual environment with a focus on mathematics, English language arts (ELA), Literacy, and English language development (ELD). To learn more about the Digital Learning Integration and Standards Guidance please visit the dedicated website for the California Department of Education.

Take a moment to watch the California Digital Learning Integration & Standards Guidance  Webinar 2: Designing Instruction Implementing Research-Based Digital Learning Practices to learn more about how L.A. Unified is utilizing the Digital Learning Integration and Standards Guidance to make an impact on student learning with the effective use of technology.
