Tool of the Week- Google My Maps
My other follow Friday is the US Department of Education (@usedgov) because sometimes you need to get a larger and different perspective than a single person can provide. I encourage you to follow them to see what is going on that is important from a national view.
ISTE Standard of the Week
Think about how important that is! Pretty much anything you want to know is now at your fingertips with resources available online, but all of that information is only useful if you know how to access it. Again, this is all higher level Blooms stuff. Evaluate, synthesise, apply.
Think about the technology you use in class. Are you asking kids to use a tech tool or are they going beyond that? Are they having to locate information online and select appropriate sources? Are they having to select a tool that is appropriate to the task at hand or do you decide that for them?
