Connecting the ISTE Standards to the Common Core
presented by Paula Don, Director of Educational Technology, School District of Philadelphia.

We live in a participatory culture. Citizens around the globe create media, influence the stream of communication, and manipulate our attention to issues and events. This brave new world requires today’s students to develop a whole new skill set that includes new media literacies as well as cultural, social, critical-thinking, evaluation and analytical skills. The ISTE Standards can help spark students’ learning of and engagement with these new skills, and the Common Core weaves them throughout its standards. This interactive session will approach the ISTE Standards as blueprints to achieve and engage the Common Core and will explore online and offline activities with a focus on new literacies and scaffolding activities.

Audience: Teachers, Curriculum Directors, Tech Integration Specialists, Tech Coordinators, Tech Coaches, School Leaders
