  • Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources.
  • Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems and operations.

Nets for Teachers

  • Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments.
  • Teachers design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessment incorporating contemporary tools and resources to maximize content learning and to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes identified in the NETS-S.
  • Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society.
