No Child Left Behind

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 technology and strategies? One way we can provide teachers with ne techniques and strategies is allowing them to take training classes that will train them to use the 21st century technology. They should be able to take annual training such as workshops, utilize valid resources and see different presentation that will show them exactly how it work. I believe that all teachers should use the Common Core State Standards. We have to equip our teachers with the knowledge and skills of using technology because it's the only way to help our students. Teachers should always be encouraged to further their education. All teachers need the proper training and education to teach and meet all standards.

Should all teachers across the country use certain practices? If so, what would those be? Yes, they should use certain practices across the country. We need to maintain good communication skills. We need to keep our students engaged. When you want to add a little fun to your teaching you should use a little sense of humor. This will help students stay engaged and build their confidence. Provide your students with positive feedback, work with them one on one, be clear and precise when providing your students with instruction and let them make some of the decision in class.

Should there be consistent standards for all teachers to meet, just as students must pass high stakes test? If so, what would be the standards? Yes there should be consistent standards for teachers. Teachers have to pass state requirements and keep their certification up to date in order to teach. They also need to do annual educational requirements to make sure teachers keep their credentials up to date. This will help them prepare their students for the future.

Lastly, share your thoughts on how well teachers are being prepared to master the ISTE Standards for Teachers in their classroom. I believe these standards will prepare teachers in their classrooms. It will help if teachers get the training they need to be great educators. It also helps their teaching skills.
