Panel discussion about the NETS-T
Panel: Christine Greenhow, University of Minnesota with Jay Pfaffman, Andrea Prejean and Neal Strudler
What are the challenges to fully incorporating teaching standards:
Model, Model, Model
Not enough computers
We don't model enough for preservice
Must validate the importance of these standards. Consensus between pre-service teachers and regular schools. Disconnect between what's being promoted. Field experience is important for preparing teachers. It takes a village to prepare a good teacher.
There is a fundamental misunderstanding of the nature of the computer and the Internet
What are some practical strategies to integrating these new standards?
For example: Copyright--never use software that CAN be stolen (plug for the open source community). Creative Commons
http://www.21stcenturyskills.org/route21/ Lesson plans and activities for teachers, so they can see what these things look like.
Discussion is turning into a discussion about how to integrate, model, force, coerce, convice, assess, and market the standards.
