Technology Standards: I CAN!


This summer I got to attend the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference in Denver, and they released the Updated 2016 ISTE Standards for Students. I truly feel that these standards were well thought out and reflect what it means to be a 21st century learner. 

There are 7 standards with 4 indicators under each standard (a - d), and they even define several terms within the indicators to make sure that the expectations are clear. Very thorough! There are Teacher standards under refinement right now, and I'm very interested to see how they outline standards for teachers!

With permission from ISTE, I created these I CAN posters for students that were written in kid language, and I included the corresponding indicators for teachers. I also included the definitions given by ISTE, and I made vocabulary word wall cards that you can use with students to create definitions in your own language. There is a blank space after the word so that you can include a QR code to post a definition that your students create!

I also included a cover for an assessment notebook. I LOVE using digital interactive notebooks, and I thought a standards assessment notebook would be a great way to show a body of evidence and include digital projects that students do to show their technology proficiency. 

I recently discovered a new place to share resources called Teacher Sherpa. On Teacher Sherpa, everything is free, and the best part is, you can edit all of it! Yep--even pdfs! They have tools that you can use to find what you're looking for and tweak it to make it fit perfectly for your needs! With a free account, you get 2 free downloads a month, for $36 a year, you can get unlimited downloads. They also have tools so that you can create your own stuff from scratch.
