Maryland Teacher Technology Standards

Staff interacting with computerThe Maryland Teacher Technology Standards were developed by a consortium of Maryland school systems, colleges, and universities to ensure that student teachers, classroom teachers, and school staff use technology proficiently. The standards serve as benchmarks for technology proficiency and provide a guideline for basic technology skills that each educator should possess.

The MTTS were originally created as part of the PT3 grant to ensure that student teacher candidates had adequate technology skills. The MTTS are now being used by grant consortium members to develop the Maryland Online Technology Assessment for Teachers and Administrators. Additionally, local school systems are also designing activities to support the grant and align with county initiatives.

This site provides practical examples of the ways school-based staff can meet MTTS standards and indicators by integrating technology in the classroom and using it as a productivity tool. The standards also assist administrators in recognizing best practices of technology in classrooms throughout their building. For more information, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
