Before watching the lecture:
Open and analyze the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards for teachers and students. ISTE standards provide a framework for learning, teaching and leading that is amplified by technology.
- ISTE Standards for Students emphasize the skills and qualities we want for students, enabling them to engage and thrive in a connected, digital world.
- ISTE Standards for Educators define the new skills and pedagogical insights educators need to teach, work and learn in the digital age.
Download the "I am a Digital Age Learner" poster that breaks down the standard for students in a nice concept map.
While watching the lecture (see Lecture folder in an eLearning) :
- Try to make a list of the skills and tools mentioned by Shannon.
- Do you know many skills and tools to give you and your future students a voice?
- What your high, middle, and elementary school teachers did to give you a voice and to connect you to the world outside of your classroom?
- What can you do to make your future students' learning more meaningful and engaging?
- Do you see an echo of ISTE standards in Shannon's teaching
