No Teacher Left Behind
EDU650: Teaching Learning and Leading in the 21st Century
How would you suggest we, as a nation, provide consistent learning opportunities for teachers and ensure that they are not left behind in learning about new techniques and strategies?
Should all teachers across the country use certain practices? If so, what would those be?
Should there be a consistent standard for all teachers to meet, just as students must pass high stakes tests? If so, what would be the standard?
Lastly, share your thoughts on how well teachers are being prepared to master the ISTE Standards for Teachers standards in their classrooms.
All teachers should be meeting the ISTE Standards in order to be effective teachers. The tools are presented to help them implement and enrich the learning process in their classrooms and with each of their students. It is also good for their professional development by creating positive models. Teachers are being prepared but unfortunately, in a lot of schools they have a script to follow and the skills taught are not being maximized.
