The ISTE Standards for Students are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process of exploration, creativity and discovery no matter where they or their teachers are in the thoughtful integration of ed tech. There are seven modules for students.
Pilot schools have been learning about special features that help teachers to facilitate class discussions, create student and extra credit assignments, and ways in which elementary teachers can use Schoology to personalize learning. In the following webinar series, we invite you to explore the use and potential of these powerful tools. If your school is interested in participating in Phase 2 of the pilot, please visit: http://bit.ly/practitioneroverview
