There are new standards for students from the International Society of Technology in Education. ISTE is the recognized body providing technology standards for schools worldwide.
One standard is for our students to become Global Collaborators. Our student’s blogs are the platform by which they will begin to connect and share. ISD Teachers will work with teachers from other schools this year to get our classes connected and interacting.
I encourage our students to continue their interest in their blogs and add content to them without having to be told by a teacher. If students feel like the sites are good reflection of themselves, they will be more inclined to use them and share their learning.
I’m excited to see how our student’s blogs will grow this year.
