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.
Session Law 2013-11; House Bill 23 authorized the State Board of Education to develop digital teaching and learning competencies to provide a framework for schools of education, school administrators, and classroom teachers.
On June 1, 2017, the Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers and for Administrators were approved by the State Board of Education (SBE) as part of licensure renewal requirements per G.S.115C-296(b)(1)c. This policy for Licensure Renewal (LICN-005) includes the requirement of two Digital Learning Competency CEUs and will go into effect for teachers and for administrators with licenses expiring on or after June 30, 2019.
