NETS for Teachers

NETS for Teachers | Apps for Education | 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. <===

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.

It's not about computer labs, it's about imbedding the technology into our content.

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic | Apps for Education | Scoop.it

As teachers, when we assign a research project, we often focus on the end product: the research essay, presentation, etc. However, students (especially young students) do not automatically know how to conduct meaningful research. Our modern students are used to Googling answers. They have grown accustomed to information being readily available. However, as academics, we know that research isn’t a  fast process. It’s slow and deliberate. As a teacher, I need to intentionally slow my students down during this exercise. I do this by breaking down a larger project into more manageable chunks and focusing on the process.

I did a poster presentation on this topic: http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/blogs/aisha-ertugrul/preventing-plagiarism-poster
