Students as Global Collaborators

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) recently revised its standards for students. These international standards call for students to become global collaborators:

Students use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.

7a. Students use digital tools to connect with learners from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, engaging with them in ways that broaden mutual understanding and learning.

7b. Students use collaborative technologies to work with others, including peers, experts or community members, to examine issues and problems from multiple viewpoints.

7c. Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal.

7d. Students explore local and global issues and use collaborative technologies to work with others to investigate solutions.
