ISTE's NETS for Teachers (NETS•T) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge educators need to teach, work, and learn in an increasingly connected global and digital society.
As technology integration continues to increase in our society, it is paramount that teachers possess the skills and behaviors of digital age professionals.
===> Moving forward, teachers must become comfortable being co-learners with their students and colleagues around the world. <===
I first connected with ISTE before they were international back in the 80's. I've worked as an ISTE consultant for over a decade. Great people and powerful lobby for ed-tech!
The purpose of this series of articles is to provide an easy to understand technical explanation of how exactly the SCORM protocol works. One of the things that greatly surprised me when I first began working with SCORM was that there seemed to be a surprising lack of good, practical technical documentation

My LinkedIn profile has been my default resume for some time. I'm looking forward to tweaking it with some media.
Nice Tips on Spicing up Your Linkedin Profile
Add some media elements to your Profile...I'll certainly be checking out the new features.
Being a content curator is all about displaying information. We don't create the content, we display it. We share it - and people read it. But, first you have to display it. There are several skills involved in displaying content.
Curation is all about finding reliable sources of information. Laura Browns tips on the process of curation will help us all step up our game.
Great points made by Laura Brown on the topic of curation, and excellent tips on how to make the content more attractive.

While I concentrate on E-Learning, I wanted to curate this interesting social network based job search site. Young teachers are a precious commodity. Those saavy enough to use this service well have already distinguished themselves as above average.
For those involved in virtual education at the K-12 level, it may be well worth your time to network here.
Katie Lepi: While 'the internet' and 'manners' don't tend to pop up in the same sentence very often (at least not in the positive sense), there are a number of ways that manners really do matter when you're interacting online.
Excellent infographic on this page.
One of the best pieces of advice I received in regards to my instructional design career was to never be afraid of hard numbers, and to go one step further – talk about your accomplishments in hard numbers. For one reason or another, many instructional designers shy away from communicating statistics when speaking about their experience in interviews or on their resume; or perhaps we just forget about them. Either way we are doing a disservice to our value.
Solid advice about how to present your experience as an instructional designer.
At a recent workshop I was showing someone how I make some of the graphics I use for the blog. As I was showing her an idea, she said that while she already knew the basic steps what she really found valuable was watching me do it and then explain why I did what I did.
I think she’s right. It is helpful to not only know how to do something, but to also know what the person’s thinking while doing it. So in today’s post, I’ll show you how I created some graphics for a few recent blog posts. You’ll learn some production tips and gain some perspective on the choices I make.
Great insight and advice in this infographic.
See Robin Goode's comments below! Excellent.
Siempre pensamos en Twitter como una red social de microblogging en la que compartir información de una manera rápida. Sin embargo y como nos cuenta esta infografía, también puede ser una excelente herramienta de curación de contenidos.

Wondering how to use Pinterest in education? Find out with this highly visual and simple look at how to use Pinterest (great for beginners!)
I admit to knowing nothing about Pinterest, but this makes it look interesting and useful.
I'm still trying to think of ways to use Pinterest with my Korean English learners. Any suggestions?
Menomonie, Wis. — For most of the 1,382 students graduating from University of Wisconsin-Stout, commencement ceremonies Friday and Saturday were a goodbye.
Commencement is a formal farewell to the campus where they’ve spent years rushing to classes, hanging out with friends and living in the residence halls.
They may return someday but probably not to eat pizza with friends at midnight or to pull an all-nighter studying for a final exam.
I attended the face to face graduation ceremony when I earned my first online masters degree. I met folks I'd worked with online and we seemed to start right off about half way into a real time friendship. That was more than ten years ago and I'm still working with some of my fellow graduates.

Tomasz Jankowski has assembled a good number of e-learning examples on this Pinterest page. You'll find videos, Lectora and Articulate modules, infographics, and some interesting case study and branching scenario examples.

I am starting to use pinterest more and more to organize visual materials and even more text-oriented material for classes. This board has a ton of different videos and image-related learning material.
The idea for Tioki, an online professional network exclusively for the education community, wasn’t happenstance, but it wasn’t planned either.
The company has since expanded beyond HR into a connectivity, discovery, and knowledge-sharing platform and changed its name to Tioki. Dubbed “The LinkedIn for Teachers,” Tioki’s purpose is to advance the education system by connecting all of the people who know it best, with the intention of sparking conversation and collaboration that would not likely happen otherwise.

You’ve been assigned your first online class to teach and you feel like you’re ready. You’ve done your homework and learned the ins and outs of the institution’s course management system.
Solid, common sense adivce. Does your online course have these features?
I not only require my students to introduce themselves, but to reply to at least one other student's introduction, so they get to know their online classmates. This semester, my students commented a number of times on how much they had learned from each other!
Here's a Pinterest board of graphic resume examples worth following.

Critical thinkiing is an essential 21st Century Skill. E-Learning courses (expecially those with facilitated discussion) are great opportunities for practicing critical thinkiing. Without Critical Thinking, a course can become so boring!

In her TED talk, "Gaming Can Make a Better World," author and researcher Jane McGonigal posits that in game worlds people are "motivated to do something that matters, inspired to collaborate, to cooperate." Video games are interactive and engaging. It's no wonder they are so pervasive with both children and adults!
A recent trend in the business world has been to bring game world elements into the real world. This methodology is referred to as "gamification." According to a Pew Research Center report, gamification is "interactive online design that plays on people's competitive instincts and often incorporates the use of rewards to drive action -- these include virtual rewards such as points, payments, badges, discounts and free gifts; and status indicators such as friend counts, re-tweets, leaderboards, achievement data, progress bars and the ability to level up."

Jane McGonigal certainly has a very good video to watch. It should get you excited about the connection between learning and gaming.
