Next Generation Standards

Focus Area #9: Content Literacy/ Next Generation Learning Standards (NGLS)

NYSTCs are committed to provided our educators with the most current information and resources to successfully embed the NYS Learning Standards into their teaching practice. Some specific areas we are focused on this year are:

  • Building awareness of the new NYS Computer Science and Digital Fluency Standards.

  • Developing tools to help teachers dive deep into the standards and align them to our statewide goals of equity and learning for all.

  • Curating resources for teachers to use immediately in their classrooms.

NYS Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards Resources for Teachers

The NYS K12 Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards were adopted by the Board of Regents in December 2020. The new standards focus on five key concepts: Digital Literacy, Impacts of Computing, Computational Thinking, Network and Systems Design, and Cybersecurity. NYS is currently in the capacity building stage with full implementation expected by September 2024. To help teachers investigate strategies and activities to successfully implement the CS & DF Standards by 2024, NYS Teacher Centers have compiled a list of resources that can be used immediately in their classrooms. The resources will be released throughout the year by concept with Digital Literacy arriving in late October.
