Slide 5

Reflection on ISTE Standards

I have been using digital technologies during the learning processes.

For presentation I use PowerPoint and Prezi

I utilize YouTube videos in learning processes because YouTube has many videos with lectures and information about what I want to learn or deliver to others.

I also use emails as a form to communicate my ideas to others.

I would try my best to be a leader in introducing new technologies. New technologies can play an important role in learning processes.

Website utilization for publishing my view points has been amazing. I made a simple website to publish some of the text material that I developed and this was an amazing experience for me.

Social media like Twitter can be a useful tools to communicate to others and share your point of view

Conclusion

The ISTE can prove useful in two ways. First is the fact that the implementation of these standards can be useful to identify the potential of the students and engage them in learning activities with the help of digital technology so that they can become more innovative and critical thinkers. Secondly the application of these standards can be useful for the teachers themselves as they could become aware of the changing learning techniques and of the recent research in the field of the use of technology for engaging with students and their parents.
