We all know how quickly technology changes and with that in mind, the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) is committed to making sure our national student technology standards address the needs of an ever changing society.
- Do today’s students need to be empowered learners and knowledge constructors?
- Should they be computational thinkers and global collaborators?
- Will having the skills of an innovative designer be needed in order to be college and career ready?
Those are some of the questions ISTE would like to know and hope that educators and other stakeholders will take time to add input to the draft document. The current draft of the new standards represent the ideas, thoughts and opinions of hundreds of educators from nearly all 50 U.S. states and multiple countries.
Here is how you can help:
(Suggestions below are from the January 7, 2016 ISTE article, This just in: Read the draft of the new ISTE standards for students)
- Read the draft of the student standards and fill out this survey to give us your feedback and share the link far and wide.
- Let us know what resources you’ll need to understand and implement the standards by filling out this survey.
- Tell us how you, your school or your district are using the standards. Tell us your story and it might be published!
Be on the lookout for the new student standards this summer. ISTE plans to share the revised document at the ISTE Summer Conference this June.
