ISTE*T: Standard 3
Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society.
ISTE*T: Standard 3.a
Demonstrate fluency in technology systems and the transfer of current knowledge to new technologies and situations.
The artifact above outlines a STEM unit that utilizes Google Earth and Excel to determine distances, use predictions, and apply their knowledge to given word problems. This set of lessons shows how basic math skills - from problem solving to graphing - can be transfered to online tools.
ISTE*T: Standard 3.b
Collaborate with students, peers, parents, and community members using digital tools and resources to support student success and innovation.
The artifact above is a full Design Element Portfolio. It was designed to show how to use basic design elements in creating online presentations. Students can collaborate with peers to design presentations or informational pieces about specific topics of choice, educational pieces, etc. to share with other classes, guardians, or community members.
ISTE*T: Standard 3.c
Communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peers using a variety of digital age media and formats.
The artifact above contains three promotional materials for educational technology in the classroom, including a flyer, brochure, and postcard. Teachers can utilize design elements and technological programs to create relevant products to keep students, guardians, and peers in the loop with what is going on in the classroom, school, and/or district.
ISTE*T: Standard 3.d
Model and facilitate effective use of current and emerging digital tools to locate, analyze, evaluate, and use information resources to support research and learning.
The artifact above is a blog I created on technology tools in the classroom. To access the blog, simply click on the image above. By locating, analyzing, and evaluating tools for personal classroom use, educators can help support the research and learning of other educators. With time being a valuable and finite resource, educators should be collaborating to help integrate more relevant technology into their classrooms.
