Chris O’Neal, educational leader and consultant, joined David and Jeff for tonight’s show.

Essential Question

Your Standards or Mine?

David> See his blog post.

Jeff> We don’t have standards for paper and pencils so why would we need them for technology? Aren’t we working with teachers to help them reach their subject area standards with the help of technology?

Take away from the discussion> The higher order rich NETS are helping frame the conversation with administrators as they talk about learning in their buildings. What is another name for “standards” when we talk about the NETS as learning outcomes we want integrated across the curriculum.
