Week 7 – NETS~S and NETS~T

Posted on: December 16, 2009

First, here are the 5 main standards for NETS~T (the teacher standards):

1. Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity

2. Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and Assessments

3. Model Digital-Age Work and Learning

4. Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility

5. Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership

And these are the 6 main standards for NETS~S (the student standards):

  1. Creativity and Innovation

2. Communication and Collaboration

3. Research and Information Fluency

4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making

5. Digital Citizenship

6. Technology Operations and Concepts

Generally speaking, teaching standards and students standards should be linked.  If the teacher is not working to support the students’ goals, then the teacher is not doing the job properly. The same is true when looking at these standards for teachers and students from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).

The standards set for the teachers are there to help the students meet the standards set for them. For example, teachers are supposed to model digital tools in the classroom and students are supposed to become fluent with different digital tools.

Using the GAME plan in my classroom will definitely help students achieve the NET~S goals. My GAME plan consists of using many of the strategies outlined by the ISTE. I encourage collaboration and creativity, as well as wanting to integrate more and more technology. I think that using the GAME plan strategies from the very beginning will help students adjust and achieve the technological standards that have been set for them. Students do well with structure and if this is what they are used to, it will become a natural part of their classroom experiences.
