Some examples of the higher order of thinking skills are:Problem solvingCritical thinking 3. Originality
ISTE.NETS (2012) Creative thinkers and innovators:Students use their previous knowledge and engender creativity.Their work is original due to personal creativity or group creativity-They will use any form of tools to investigate complex situations-They will also give their own evaluationCommunicating and collaborating:Digital tools are being used to dialogue and work together. They get to discover information about other cultures.
Digital Citizenship:Students learn to use the medial tools wisely and are very conscientious of lawful practices and decent behaviors. They demonstrate a positive attitude towards technologyAlso demonstrate responsible attitude as “digital citizenship”
Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity:This can be done through the use of support for “face to face and virtual environments” Students are ready to learn and apply new things. They are creative in their own rights. If the necessary tools are available fro them, they will entertain you with their talents. Teachers should be there to allow them to invent and be critical thinkers. Let them be a part of the real world and have them to solve critical issues using medial tools and resources. Students learn by modeling. Be available to them through the use of modeling the knowledge you have and be involved with them while learning.2. Design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments:Teachers should be the type of creative thinkers that will develop or use experiences that facilitates the use of media tools so that students can learn. Students are very curious. They should be allowed to “pursue their own educational goals, manage their own learning and assess their own progress”. Many of them have preferred learning styles and activities should be based on how they learn. There should be several types of evaluation methods to asses students performance.3. Model Digital age work and learning: Teachers should demonstrate the “knowledge, skills and work processes” that will show that they are “global and digitally” literate. All this should be communicated through modeling to students, parents peers and the community at large. For effectiveness to occur, teachers should also “locate, analyze and evaluate” information modeling digital tools.
ISTE.NETS-T (2008)4. Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and ResponsibilityIt is always good to know the information surrounding legal practices. For successful teaching and learning experience to occur student should be taught how to safely used information. These include but are not limited to “copyright, intellectual property and the appropriate documentation of sources”. Also appreciate all cultures and have students believe that culture is not a barrier to learning media tools. Once you are willing to learn, effectiveness will take place.5. Engage in professional growth and leadership:It is crucial for teachers to practice CPD. This is demonstrating “lifelong learning”. Teaching is not a stagnant profession. One continues to learn on a daily basis. Technology is now upon teachers and most students have already caught the “vision of technology infusion”. Teachers need to get on board and to add technological flavor in their impartation, modeling and involvement of knowledge.

INTRODUCTION: International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) are values set aside for knowledge, direction and instruction in the digital age. ISTE.NETS (2012) ISTE provides a mass of information to assist teachers and administrators gain knowledge about the NETS and skillfully apply them. ibid
It sets a standard of distinction!It is very beneficial when instructing, gaining knowledge and directing with technology in education!!! ibid
“Published documents setting out specifications and procedures designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and consistently perform the way they are intended to. They establish a common language which defines quality and safety criteria” Australia Satndards (nd)
4 BENEFITS OF USING NETS(ibid) IT ASSIST STUDENTS IT IMPROVES THE TO BE MORE ALERT HIGHER ORDER OF AND READY IN AN THINKING SKILLS AGGRESSIVE JOB MARKET ASSIST STUDENTS TO BE MORE FOCUS WITH IT ASSIST SCHOOLS PROJECTS AND TO BE MORE OPEN TO ONLINE LEARNING DIGITAL LEARNING ELEMENTS
IN WHAT WAY DOES NETS BENEFITS STUDENTS? 2.1. STUDENTS BECOME CREATIVE THINKERS COMMUNICATING AND INNOVATORS ANDUSING TECHNOLOGY. COLLABORATING3. They become very 4. Critical thinkers,good at researching problem solvers and and finding decision makers information.
STUDENTS BECOMEDIGITAL CITIZENSTechnological concepts areproperly understood
TEACHER’S EFFECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION OF NETS:SISTE.NETS-T (2008)*** FACILITATE AND INSPIRE STUDENT LEARNING AND CREATIVITY*** DESIGN AND DEVELOP DIGITAL AGE LEARNING EXPERIENCES AND ASSESSMENTS*** MODEL DIGITAL AGE WORK AND LEARNING
CONTINUATION: *** PROMOTE AND MODEL DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITY *** ENGAGE IN PROFESSIONAL GROWTH AND LEADERSHIP
