Digital Tools and Collaboration (DTC) 

Digital tools are applications that produce, manipulate, or store data in a digital format (e.g., word processors, drawing programs, image/video/music editors, simulators, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) applications, publishing programs). Digital tools are critical for conducting research, communicating, collaborating and creating in social, work, and personal environments. The use of digital tools is integral to success in school and career. 

  • Digital Tools: Digital tools are used to create, manipulate, analyze, edit, publish, or develop artifacts. Individuals and groups identify, evaluate, select, and adapt new tools as they emerge. 
  • Collaboration and Communication: A variety of digital tools are used to work collaboratively anytime and anywhere, inside and outside the classroom, both synchronously and asynchronously, to develop artifacts or solve problems, contribute to the learning of others, and communicate. 
  • Research: A variety of digital tools are used to conduct research, answer questions, and develop artifacts to facilitate learning and convey understanding. Access to the Internet and digital tools allows people to gather, evaluate (for validity, bias, relevance, accuracy, etc.), organize, analyze, and synthesize information, data and other media from a variety of sources. Effective use of information, data, and media requires consideration of validity, ethics, and attribution of sources.
