ISTE created a list of NETS for teachers. These will help me become a better educator and integrate technology into my classroom. I model digital age work and learning for my students on a daily basis. When they have a question, we go to the internet to find the answer. I use my SMART board to make my lessons interactive. I also engage in professional growth and leadership. Participating in an online graduate program has allowed me to speak to other educators about integrating technology.
There are a few NETS that I feel that I need to work on. My school only has one computer in the classroom because the students go to computer class twice a week. I need to work on facilitating and inspiring student learning and creativity. My students can use the few computers we have available to collaborate with other students in different environments. They can web conference with other classrooms.
I would also like to design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments. I incorporate tools and resources to promote student learning, but I do not always promote creativity. I need to work on personalizing activities for my students based on their learning styles and abilities with technology.
My GAME plan:
My GAME plan:
- Inspire student learning and creativity using web 2.0 tools.
- Personalize activities for my students based on their learning styles and abilities.
- Work with computer teacher to find times that the lab is free. This will allow time for web 2.0 tools.
- Ask for another computer in my classroom.
- Give a survey to see how each student learns best.
- Give formative assessments using these tools and learning styles.
- Make observations of how the students are doing.
- I will evaluate my students and my teaching after each lesson.
Do any teachers have suggestions for how to improve on these NETS with limited technology?
