NETS - S (Standards for students)

Page history last edited by Margaret Baker 13 years, 3 months ago

The International Society for Technology in Education has developed NETS (National Educational Technology Standards) for students, teachers, and administrators.

 

  • NETS -S, standards for students were re-designed in 2007 to focus on 6 performance indicators:
    1. Creativity and Innovation
    2. Communication and Collaboration
    3. Research and Information Fluency
    4. Critical thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making 
    5. Digital Citizenship -- Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior. Students:
      1. advocate and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and technology.
      2. exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity.
      3. demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning.
      4. exhibit leadership for digital citizenship.
    6. Technology operations and concepts 

 

New Zealand has a 'NetSafe' grid which identifies the progression of the learner from beginner to master in ICT (Information and Communication technologies).


Margaret's Favs

  • Kings Canyon USD teachers, teacher-librarians, administrators pulled together resources from a variety of resources for the lesson - Example grade 5.
  • NetSmartz has professional, engaging,  colorful, short videos on most of the topics, K-12. Check here for a comprehensive list of videos/activities to download; you just have to agree to use for educational purposes.
  • PSA announcements by the Ad Council. Series of 5 videos starts with  Choose What Happens Next . It's a 'choose your own adventure' series on sexting and shows how things can go viral within minutes.
  • Create a survey, using Google docs or Survey Monkey, like this: http://tinyurl.com/42x3ufc which was created by Maria Petropulos, Fowler USD.
    That's Not Cool is a site for teens that asks "Where do you draw the digital line". Discusses controlling, pressuring, disrespectful behavior. Shows both sides of the issue like Pressure Pic Problem. Mature vocabulary.
  • WebWise i.e an Irish website provides interactive, online activities for children. The  presentation is live (Irish accent). Nice teacher lesson plan - student handouts a bit dated.

Primary K-3

Common Sense Media has curriculum overview, scope and sequence, unit on digital citizenship and an video about My Online Neighborhood.

Hector's World videos - bit of an accent but the videos take place in the ocean and the unwelcome predators are great whites

  3. Have the teachers review the AUPs with students -- do they really know what they are signing?
  4. Pick a lesson or two with a short video clip from the plethora of those available.
  5. Ask the teachers to record it in their lesson plan books.
