NETS for Teachers

NETS for Teachers | Community and Achievement | Scoop.it

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!

A teacher is no longer the master of knowledge, only the facilitator who can guide the student away from the overwhelming amount of irrelevant information towards useful digital content.

Building Community, Respect, and Achievement

Building Community, Respect, and Achievement | Community and Achievement | Scoop.it

The entire Glen Cove, NY, community has embraced Robert M. Finley Middle School. Everyone— the mayor, small business owners, clergy, parents, teachers, and students—feels that the school is important and successful. Gaps in student achievement have decreased significantly and all student achievement has improved over the last five years in this school, where nearly half of the 652 students are from families that are considered economically in need. Everyone agrees that the school works hard to celebrate its diversity and prevent any student from feeling disenfranchised.

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think | Community and Achievement | Scoop.it
Motivation—there are two kinds: intrinsic, which involves doing something because we want to do it, and extrinsic, which is doing something because we have to do it. A negative relationship exists between the two.

Intrinsic is the motivation that we strive for, however we sometimes need to use extrinsic.
