engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources
promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes
model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students, colleagues, and others in face-to-face and virtual environments
Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and AssessmentsTeachers design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessments incorporating contemporary tools and resources to maximize content learning in context and to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes identified in the NETS•S. Teachers:
design or adapt relevant learning experiences that incorporate digital tools and resources to promote student learning and creativity
develop technology-enriched learning environments that enable all students to pursue their individual curiosities and becomeactive participants in setting their own educational goals, managing their own learning, and assessing their own progress
customize and personalize learning activities to address students’ diverse learning styles, working strategies, and abilities using digital tools and resources
provide students with multiple and varied formative and summative assessments aligned with content and technologystandards and use resulting data to inform learning and teaching
Model Digital-Age Work and Learning.Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society. Teachers:
demonstrate fluency in technology systems and the transfer of current knowledge to new technologies and situations  There were many instances throughout the semester where we engaged in exploration of different technology systems. Google is a popular website that has many tools that can be integrated into classroom use. A paper on different elements of Google can be seen here: Exploring Google.
collaborate with students, peers, parents, and community members using digital tools and resources to support student success and innovation  There are many ways to use technology to reach a larger audience. One tool we used was learning to create a movie using video, photos, and research. By picking a topic or a theme, a video can be created for many different uses. Our video project is here.
communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peers using a variety of digital-age media and formats  This web page is a great example of how I can use technology as a source of communication, news, and information for students and families at home. By having a web page, others will be able to get a sense of what goes on in the classroom, and many other features.
model and facilitate effective use of current and emerging digital tools to locate, analyze, evaluate, and use information resources to support research and learning  In EFRT 352, we integrated information about current digital tools with a paper about multimedia usage in the classroom. By doing this research, I developed familiarity with techniques and programs available for teachers, parents, and students. The paper can be seen here.
Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and ResponsibilityTeachers understand local and global societal issues and responsibilities in an evolving digital culture and exhibit legal and ethical behavior in their professional practices. Teachers:
advocate, model, and teach safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology, including respect for copyright,intellectual property, and the appropriate documentation of sources
address the diverse needs of all learners by using learner-centered strategies and providing equitable access to appropriate digital tools and resources
promote and model digital etiquette and responsible social interactions related to the use of technology and information
develop and model cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with colleagues and students of other cultures using digital-age communication and collaboration tools
Engage in Professional Growth and LeadershipTeachers continuously improve their professional practice, model lifelong learning, and exhibit leadership in their school and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources. Teachers:
participate in local and global learning communities to explore creative applications of technology to improve student learning
exhibit leadership by demonstrating a vision of technology infusion, participating in shared decision making and communitybuilding, and developing the leadership and technology skills of others
evaluate and reflect on current research and professional practice on a regular basis to make effective use of existing and emerging digital tools and resources in support of student learning
contribute to the effectiveness, vitality, and self-renewal of the teaching profession and of their school and community
