NETS-T are the technology-related standards for teachers and is developed by ISTE.The 2008 version was used as one of the core criteria in the teacher education program accreditation process. W200 is designed to promote learners to acquire the skill-sets described in these standards.Ex. The application of the NETS-T in W200 is evident in ePortfolio > NETS-T page. (Learners need to show evidence of their progress towards meeting these standards)
To address the rapid changes in technology, instruction, and learning environments, ISTE recently led a collaborative, international effort to refresh the NETS. For more information: http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx
