ISTE NETS Standards for Teachers: Evidence and Rationale Statements
ISTE NETS Standards for Teachers: Evidence and Rationale Statements By: Holly PetrichCertificate in Educational Technology
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” -Albert Einstein
Standard One: Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity• Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments.
Evidence• Can You Hear Me Now? Prezi Presentation• http://prezi .com/dxjkkouxrz30/can-you-hear-me-now/
Rationale• This is a Prezi presentation that I created in my Using Digital Media in Your Classroom class (EDU 6440) to show students what I expected from an assignment for them. Students will choose an invention they feel had the greatest influence on the 21st century and create a digital presentation of their choice. I chose the cell phone as my example for the invention that has had the greatest influence because it is a topic that students can relate to. Being a social studies teacher, this assignment has great value to students because they can choose a topic that is important to them and present it in a way that best reflects their learning style, maximizing my ability to assess them in the best way possible.
Standard Two: Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and Assessments• Teachers design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessment incorporating contemporary tools and resources to maximize content learning in context and to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes identified in the NETS•S.
Rationale• This is a project I created in my Culturally Responsive Teaching class (EDU 6777) detailing the eight diversity pedagogy dimensions, including a pedagogical example of each. This project helped me understand each of the eight pedagogy dimensions by having me provide a definition of each dimension and an example of each dimension. I included a quote and an image about each dimension to provide understanding from multiple intelligences.
Standard Three: Model Digital-Age Work and Learning• Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society.
Evidence• Mrs. Petrich’s Class Blog• http://mrspetrich.blogspot.com/
Rationale• This is a class blog I created in my Using Digital Media in Your Classroom class (EDU 6440) that meets standard three because I am collaborating with students, peers, parents, and community members using digital tools and resources to support student success and innovation.
Standard Four: Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility• Teachers understand local and global societal issues and responsibilities in an evolving digital culture and exhibit legal and ethical behavior in their professional practices.
Evidence• Technology Integration Initiative: Preparing Teachers for Teaching about Internet Safety on Slideshare http://www.slideshare.net/hpetrich /technology-integration-initiative?from=share_
Rationale• This is a Slideshare presentation I created in my 21st Century Technologies in Teaching class (EDU 6520). It includes my vision, goals, and rationale for the plan. It also includes information on Internet safety, netiquette, cyberbullying, and how to care for computers. This presentation was created to help teachers and students use the Internet responsibly.
Standard Five: Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership• Teachers continuously improve their professional practice, model lifelong learning, and exhibit leadership in their school and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources.
Evidence• Educational Technology Plan Paper (double-click on cover page information- cannot view in slide share mode) Holly Petrich Educational Technology Plan EDU 6450 Leadership and Future Trends in Educational Technology April 22, 2012 Professor James Amaral
Rationale• This is an educational technology plan I created in my Leadership and Future Trends in Educational Technology class (EDU 6450) for Queen of Peace School in Cloquet, MN. There is no current plan in place, so this plan was created from scratch and includes of goals for the school, strengths and weaknesses of current hardware and software, a timeline of the plan, a budget for the plan, who the stakeholders are, a communication plan, a professional development plan, best practices in student learning and technology, an evaluation plan, and recommendations. This is evidence of leadership in a school because I would be taking on a plan that would include professional development for myself and other teachers and discusses how to effectively implement digital tools in the classroom.
