No Teacher Left Behind Act
Ensuring Teaching Success
Consistent Learning Opportunites
The Uniform National Standards
The standards will outline what teachers need to know, understand, be able to do, and will emphasize both excellence and equity, and will evolve to meet the needs of students, other teachers, and society (Mason, 2005). Teachers should have basic computer/technology operations and concepts training. Without the basic concepts they will not be able to use other forms of technology.
Preparing Teachers for ISTE Standards
Consistent Standards for Teachers
There should be consistent standards for teachers to meet. This would make the requirements for each state the same for educators and enable teachers to teach in any state in the United States. If the standards are different from state to state, it does not allow for Uniform National Standards.
