Each label will be appended with a fiscal year tag identifying when its associated instructional technology standards were defined or revised. For example, the beginning label for a small technology-enhanced classroom is TECH-SMALL_CLASSROOM.FY14. Tags classifying additional instructional features are added to any label beginning with TECH-SMALL CLASSROOM. Examples include -iTV (interactive television classroom), -WVC (web-based video conferencing), -LC (lecture capture), -COLL (collaborative classroom), and -SP (specialized).
