Technology does and will continue to provide a range of options and opportunities for extending and enhancing student learning.
What are the necessary conditions to effectively leverage technology for learning?
Read ISTE’s list of essential conditions and their descriptions
Share your general impression of these conditions and their interrelationships
We’ll return to these in a little bit…
By developing their own understanding and knowledge of technology for learning, as well as their skills and proficiency using and integrating it effectively into learning experiences, teachers (learning facilitators) can help optimize the use of technology for improved student learning.
What’s important for students to learn, understand, know, and be able to do related to the productive use of technology for learning?
Form a group of 3
Divvy up the 6 ISTE•S standards (2 each) and read
Reflect (internally) to identify a specific improving practice in your district where technology is being used to support students achieving all or part of your selected standards
Share the above with your group members and discuss
Optional: Discuss the correlation of ISTE•S with other frameworks for students and technology
What’s important for educators to learn, understand, know, and be able to do related to the productive use of technology for learning?
(And by whom [by which roles] within our learning systems?)
In the same group of 3, divvy up the adult “members” of the ISTE Standards family, one each (don’t worry about the Computer Science Educators for now…)
Read (vertically) the standards for the role you’ve selected (https://www.iste.org/standards/)
Share and discuss highlights of each role with your group
Using the ISTE Standards by Role Matrix, compare (horizontally) common themes/content across the standards and how each role orients to a particular theme (e.g., digital age learning)
A supportive context for effective professional learning is critical for teachers to be able to develop their own understanding and knowledge of technology for learning, as well as their skills and proficiency using and integrating it effectively into learning experiences, all so that they can optimize the use of technology for improved student learning.
How do we as educators and members of learning organizations/communities contribute to and participate in shaping and sustaining professional learning?
What standards, frameworks, processes, designs do we, or might we access and effectively utilize in support of such learning?
On your own, read each of the 7 standard descriptors (standard title and bold type standard)
At your table, discuss your initial impressions and insights about these standards
Juxtapose the ISTE Essential Conditions and learningforward Standards for Professional Learning; what relationships do you observe?
Juxtapose the ISTE Standards and learningforward Standards for Professional Learning; what parallels do you observe between educator roles in these two sets of standards?
How does this sample “IC” Map describe the uses,
the roles of technology for professional learning?

Read the “framing slide” for a particular content area or topic
First pass: As each slide in a 4-slide SAMR progression group is shown, talk with table mates to identify the technology being shown and its (possible) use
Second pass: As possible, identify what about the technology and its use links it to that SAMR level
Debrief as a room

What connections to SAMR did you perceive in this survey?
How might your teachers score?
Based on those scores, how might these results guide the design for PL?
What, if any, other such assessments* have you used in your districts? How have they worked to guide PL?
(*What other assessments exist?)
What are some implications of today’s learning for your own and/or district PL?
What opportunities do you perceive to incorporate some of today’s resources in your district?
How might the use of exemplar standards for PL assist you and your district in its PL efforts?
What next action focused on improving your own and/or your district’s approach to PL are you ready to commit to?
