Standards for the 21st Century Learner
These standards from the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) help today's learner to "1. Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge. 2. Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge. 3. Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society. 4. Pursue personal and aesthetic growth" (AASL, 2007). At St. Johns Country Day School, we strive to integrate these standards into instruction along with state and national standards so that our students excel not only in content knowledge, but in developing skills, dispositions in action, responsibilities, and self-assessment strategies for life-long learning as well.

ISTE Nets for Students
International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has standards for digital learning in today's educational environment. They are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge students need to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly global and digital world. Simply being able to use technology is no longer enough. Today's students need to be able to use technology to analyze, learn, and explore. Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live, and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities. (www.iste.org). Click the left image for the full standards.
