No Teacher Left Behind

Training Teacher in the Twenty -First Century

Road to Success

How would you suggest we as a provide consistent learning opportunities for teachers and ensure that they are not left behind in learning about new techniques?


We must provide teachers with comparable formative and summative assessments that are given to students to determine the scope of their knowledge of current technology.

Provide in-house training, workshop, seminars, and retreats during an established period of time, i.e., the beginning and the middle of a school term, in order to maintain and improve their knowledge of new techniques. This would also allow the more experienced and the less experienced teach to learn from each other.


Should all teachers across the country use certain practices? If so, what would those be?


YES, all teachers should use certain practices but these practices should be modified to meet the needs of the students. All students do not learn the same and there are different practices and techniques for different states.

Special needs students

Gifted students

Exceptional Learning students

IEP students

ESL students


Should there be a consistent standard for all teachers to meet just as student must pass high stakes test? If so, what would be the standard?


There should be a standard for all students as well as for teachers.

Teacher must have some kind of guide if they are to move students into the 21st century.

Teacher must know and understand the standard so when question come up they would be able to respond on the standard.


Lastly share your thoughts on how well teachers are being prepared to master the ISTE standards for teachers standards in their classroom.


Teacher are being prepared to master the ISTE Standards by taking course like this one at a university or collage.

Taking these courses help teacher to understand the standards so they can be more knowledgeable and prepared as they help students in the use of digital tools and resources(ISTE Standards for teacher).
