Consistant Learning Opportunities for Teachers!

I know that there are required programs in place for teachers to keep up to date with the latest technological advances, but much like the videos in our materials this week I think that online seminars that teachers could view at their convenience and receive credit. If there's not something like this already established.

Should all teachers across the country use certain practices?

In my opinion, diversity is key, there are standards in place, but each teacher may have their own special way of presenting information to keep it interesting for his/her group of students in accordance with their skills set.

NETS-T Standards

Using technology to inspire student's creativity.
Provide lessons including technology to encourage it's use.
Be a role model by demonstrating fluency in technology systems.

Consistant Standards for Teachers

I believe that there should be consistant standards for all teachers to meet, just as students must pass high stakes tests, due to the fact that we must be in tune with the latest technique being used to teach each subject. This standard should be equivalent to the standards that are set for the students.
