ISTE has NETS (National Educational Technology Standards) for students, teachers, administrators, computer science teachers, and coaches. A session was offered at the ISTE Conference on the newly released NETS for Coaches, so I made sure I attended. I enjoyed the discussion that took place among other technology integration specialists like me. I plan to use these standards to help guide me as I work with teachers this coming school year – There are supposed to be rubrics to go along with each standard, but I cannot locate them – perhaps they have not yet been released. The white paper that is available to ISTE members is excellent.
There are six standards and 28 performance indicators. To summarize:
Visionary Leadership: Shared Vision, Strategic Planning, Advocacy, Innovation/Change
Teaching, Learning, & Assessment: Content/Technology Standards, Research-based Learning, Meaningful/Relevant Learning, Creativity, Higher-order Thinking, Differentiation, Instructional Design, Assessment, Data Analysis
