                                             ISTE Standards

When creating your lessons and using technology as a tool for enhancing lessons
please make sure to connect the ISTE Standards(International Society for
Technology Education) to your lesson.  These will help you focus on your ultimate
goal for the lesson.  It will help you focus on the "why" you are using technology.  By
looking at the technology standards it could also help you think of something that
you did not think about originally when creating the lesson or unit.  

By having
students look at the Student ISTE Standards it helps students develop a
deeper more meaningful understanding of what being a true Digital Citizen means
and helps them fully understand why they are using technology to further develop
and deepen their education.
