Where do you rate?
The following scale was developed by the 21things Project team in 2008 (McCarthy, Miracola, Parker-Moore, White) to assist educators in determining technology proficiency for each Thing, based on the ISTE-Standards. Consider the following examples when ranking/rating your performance on each of the Things:
The International Society for Technology in Education created the ISTE Standards for Teachers in 2008. The emphasis is on using technology to learn and teach.
The Standards have been revised in 2017 and the new Standards have been released on the ISTE website.
The ISTE Standards•T are your road map to helping students become empowered learners. These standards will deepen your practice, promote collaboration with peers, challenge you to rethink traditional approaches and prepare students to drive their own learning.
