Book Title: National Educational Technology Standards for Students: Second Edition
Publisher: International Society for Technology in Education
Author: NETS Project
First introduced in 1998, the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) Project is an ongoing initiative of the International Society for Technology in Education. In a unique partnership with teachers and teacher educators, curriculum and education associations, government, businesses, and private foundations, ISTE has responded to calls for educational technology standards, curriculum, and tools with its NETS Project. The primary goal of the NETS Project is to enable stakeholders in PK-12 education to develop national standards for educational uses of technology that facilitate school improvement. The NETS Project works to define standards for students, integrating curriculum, technology, and standards for student assessment and evaluation of technology use. Forty-nine of the 50 U.S. states have adopted, adapted, or referenced the NETS in state department of education documents.
As technology, resources, practices, and assessments changed over time, it became necessary to review and refresh the standards. This full-color booklet includes the entire revised text of the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS*S). Also included are a discussion of the need for technology standards, a project overview offering historical perspective on the NETS*S and a summary of the refresh process, student profiles and examples, and the results of a scenario survey.
