NET-T Standard 5

Standard 5

Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership

This standard is about always learning new technology, improving skills, and demonstrating professionalism with technology. Teachers need to create a lifelong learning environment for their students.  Teachers also need to reflect on their personal teaching practices on a yearly basis ( or sooner) to ensure they are up to date with the latest gadgets out there. 

Strenghts:  I have found myself using and looking for new ways to use technology with PE.  At first I really had no ides that you could use it so much.  I enjoy finding out about how excited students get when you use technology in class.  I don’t think they ever knew that PE could use it too.

Weaknesses:  There are many teachers that do not want to learn and be up to date with technology and it shows from lack of excitement from the students.  If teachers are not willing to learn, our administration should take this in consideration when renewing contracts.  The world is eventually going to be technology based almost 100% and everyone needs to be on board and willing to learn.

Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility

This standard talks about teaching safety with technology and respect for each others work and property.  It also teaches the cultural responsibility of being aware of what is going on all around the world using technology. Diversity of all cultures through learning with digital tools and resources.

Strengths:  I enjoy using the technology to find new games and activities for my students to learn about. I have many different nationalities in my classes and I actually am going to let them bring in some games they play from where they are from.  I think the student will enjoy this tremendously .

Weaknesses: There is not really any weakness to teaching responsibility.  The students need to know what is right and wrong.  They will not know they are doing something wrong, like not siting something, if we do not teach them technology morals.  We as teachers are here to protect our innocent children from the wild and crazy world.

Model Digital Age Work and Learning

 This standard demonstrates the knowledge that a teacher has using technology.  A teacher demonstrates his/her skills of technology in a professional way, while teaching all types of classes.  Teachers collaborate with students, co-workers, parents and peers their knowledge of current uses of technology.

I think that teacher should be up to date with technology.  Today’s digital world is overruling the older teachers’ ways and newer teachers are having better success with the students.  Although I am not very tech minded, I am trying to learn and the lingo and different ways to use technology in my PE classes.

Strengths and Weaknesses:  I personally do not have any strengths in my class with technology right now.  I am open to different ideas on how to integrate into my daily classes.  Time is my main concern and the fact that I only see the students for one semester.

Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences and Assessments

 Summarization:   This standard is where technology is provided to the students to enhance learning.  The students use technology to learn in their own diverse way.  It allows creativity for learning.  The students are in control of what and how they learn using technology.

 I think this is a wonderful way for the students to learn.  Since there are so many different learning styles, this standard can cover them all.  The teacher give the topic area and what she wants them to learn, then it’s up to the student to learn the material using technology their own way.  They are allowed to be creative and learn in their own individual way.

Strengths:  I am trying to incorporate technology into my health classes that I teach.  I am giving them assignments where they have to search for answers of questions that they do not know the answers to via technology.  I require them to site all their information.  I am also using the Promethean board as well for interactive games and lesson on health to keep it exciting.  The students seem to enjoy this type of teaching really much.  They have actually tought me some things on the Promethean board that I did not know.  I think that with me being at an international baccalaureate school, technology is going to be the key to reaching all the students.

Weaknesses:  My only concerns with me having the students look up material at home or somewhere else, is the safety issue.  When looking up anything “health” there tends to be inappropriate sightings as well.  I wish I could block them from this title but there are too many bad sites to be able to block all of them.

Standard:   Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity

Summarization:   Teachers use their knowledge and technology to teach the students the lessons they have prepared. 

I personally as a PE teacher do not have this advantage on a daily basis or hardly at all.  I would love to be able to have the students interact and do physical activity to videos and web cast with other students around the world. 

 Strengths: Through this class, I have been able to teach health with some technology.  I am willing to learn new ways to incorporate it into my daily lessons in the gym.  I find it hard with time, to see this as an everyday event, but I would really love to see something happen at my school and be one of the first in Greenvilel County to do this. 

 Weaknesses:   If teacher is not technology advanced, this type of teaching may slow them down, become discouraged and not have excitement to teach
