Global Learning in the Digital Age
As foundational ICT skills penetrate throughout our society, students will be expected to apply the basics in authentic, integrated ways to solve problems, complete projects, and creatively extend their abilities. ISTE's National Educatonal Technology Standards for Students (2007) help students prepare to work, live, and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities.
The new standards identify several higher-order thinking skills and digital citizenship as critical for students to learn effectively for a lifetime and live productively in our emerging global society.
What do the refreshed NETS look like in the classroom?
ISTE's "From Paper to Practice" video series and discussion on the NETS Implementation wiki can help you see simulations of teachers incorporating the NETS into their classrooms. Filmed at the Leadership Symposium at NECC 2008, these innovative educators will inspire and show you what is possible!
