Technology to Support Teaching and Learning

 NOTE TO SBU STUDENTS:  This page provides one way to organize some of the technology-related work you have done.  You can delete pieces of the table below; you can insert small icons to use as links to documents, PowerPoint presentations, video clips etc.--- or not;as you choose.  You can add more indicators (see the ISTE page).  Do anything you want to make this personal and to show what you can do!  DELETE THIS NOTE!!!  You should probably re-write the introductory text below, too!

 

Teachers in today's classrooms must be able to use technology to support and enhance their teaching and student's learning.  They must be able to plan lessons that utilize technology and they must design learning experiences where children use technology to construct learning.  ISTE, the International Society for Technology in Education, has developed a set of technology standards -- competencies that all teachers should have.  Throughout this portfolio are examples of how I have used technology.  On this page are some specific examples of how I meet the technology standards for new teachers.
