Before we learn how to unpack an ISTE Student Standardwe will first explore the standards themselves and learn more about how they came to exist. The ISTE Standards were first released in 1998 by the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) and were re-released later in 2007. Since then ,they have had several updates and revisions to become the version we use today. Take a moment to visit the ISTE Website to view the standards published for students, educators, education leaders, and coaches: focus of the rest of this course will be on the ISTE Standards for Students.   

Before we move to the standards unpacking processtake a moment to introduce yourself and share your existing knowledge of and experience with the ISTE Student Standards. Using thFlipgrid link here, record yourself answering the following questions:

  1. Introduce yourself!  What is your name and what do you teach? 
  2. What do you know about the ISTE Student Standards? Do you have any experience implementing them into your curriculum and classroom? Share your personal experience and perspective.  

After sharing your response, post a comment or video response to ONE other Flipgrid response! What did you find interesting or resonate with?
