@1-6, To be or not to be?

NETs – To be or not to be?

Random thoughts-

  • Standards provide the ‘safety nets’ to practice and play within
  • The big question is – are the standards the guiding force or driving force?
  • It’s a fine line when the focus shifts from the content standards to tech standards. What’s the focus – subject specific learnings or the learning of the tech tool?
  • If tech resources are available anytime, anywhere, then is there a need to be teaching-to tech standards? Aren’t the tech tools a medium to help students learn about – creativity, collaboration, communication, social skills, problem solving
  • Does it matter who’s teaching the tech skills – c’room teacher, tech teacher or both? isn’t it limiting?
