Skills Let’s revisit some skills. Remember the survey. Instructional Designer Toolbelt includes: Technical (hardware/software) Communication Interpersonal Instructional Design Others Teacher Toolbelt includes: Curriculum Learning Theory
Standards (Methods to Madness) Ready. International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS). Will go with NETS. Defines concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes for applying technology in educational settings. Focus on 3 levels 1.Teacher 2.Educational Technology Facilitator 3.Educational Technology Leader
Standards (Methods to Madness) 8 standards with objectives for each level: 1. Technology Operations and Concepts 2. Planning and Designing Learning Environments and Experiences 3. Teaching, Learning, and the Curriculum 4. Assessment and Evaluation 5. Productivity and Professional Practice 6. Social, Ethical, Legal and Human Issues 7. Procedures, Policies, Planning and Budgeting for Technology Environments (for ETF, ETL only) 8. Leadership and Vision for Integration of Technology (for ETF, ETL only)
“How To” “How Can” Online and face-to-face courses and workshops Self-instructed or group-instructed modules Specialized school-created programs 2 categories: 1. “How to”—free vendor-produced Internet tutorials for specific hardware and software e.g. Palm and Apple 2. “How can”—ways to integrate technology e.g. Programs devised by PBS, the National Council of Teachers, the ISTE, and the National School Boards Association
“How To” “How Can” Program examples: Connected University from Classroom Connect, Inc. PBS TeacherLine Tapped In TaskStream Snacks by Tech4Learning (more on our website)
