Another really good follow is Amy Mayer. I got to meet her last year at a Google event in Austin and she has some really great stuff. You can find her blog at friEdTechnology.com and follow her on Twitter at @friEdTechnology . On her blog you can even sign up to subscribe to her email list. Lots of ways to keep up with her!
ISTE Standard of the Week
This is our last week to look at standard 1 of the ISTE standards for students.
Standard 1 is all about Creativity and innovation, and states "Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology." Today we are going to look at part of that standard which says students will be able to "identify trends and forecast possibilities"
Have you noticed that these standards don't speak about students learning how to use any specific tools? The concepts are bigger than that- basically all that Bloom's Taxonomy stuff you learned years ago, but they need to know how they can use current tools to do those things.
