1. 3. Model Digital-Age Work And Learning

1.1. Teachers need to demonstrate confidence in the technology systems they incorporate into the classroom.

1.1.1. 1. Using new software that students are not familiar with such as Google Timeline or KerProof enables students to see that branching out and trying new things is okay.

1.4. Teachers need to assist their students with emerging digital technology to explore and investigate important information

1.4.1. 6. Having weekly visits to the computer lab allows students the ability to access the web and what new software is out there permitting students to become comfortable with digital technology.

1.4.2. 7. After school technology clubs or programs can be implemented to introduce students to new technological software.

1.4.3. 8. Students should be familiar with 'Read Along' a program that allows students to become engaged in reading by asking questions and filling in blanks about passages.

2. 1. Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity

2.1. Students need to be involved in solving critical thinking problems with digital resources .

2.2. Teachers need to model and encourage innovative and creative ideas in the classroom.

2.2.1. 2. Implement digital Videos with other classrooms around the United States or even the world.

2.2.2. 3. Ipads to enhance a students knowledge in a particular content area.

2.2.3. 4. Implement SMART Boards in the classroom to show students different types of technology. Allow them to use the SMART markers and erasers, it will help engage them in their learning.

2.3. Teachers need to encourage students to work together to use critical thinking skills with creative processes.

2.3.1. 5. Create a Wiki or a Facebook page for students to use that will enable them to communicate on the web, for classroom based information, outside of the learning enviornment.

2.3.2. 6. Allow students to use Google Docs in order to collaborate with other students and share their creativity and ideas.

3. 4. Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility

3.1. Teachers need to model and teach safe and legal information with technology about things like intellectual property and copyright information.

3.1.1. 1. Hosting a class at the beginning of each semester on what is "safe and legal" on the web will allow students to become familiar with how to navigate technology.

3.2. Teachers need to be aware and address diverse groups of learners while still incorporating digital technology into the classroom.

3.2.1. 2. Using software such as Tumblebooks allows teachers to have online communication with their students while still giving students with disabilities the opportunity to navigate on this software with talking picture books and animated directions.

3.2.2. 3. Allowing specific students to use Ipods or other technological "aids" in the classroom will allow students to all learn in differentiated ways.

3.2.3. 4. Teachers will be able to reach a more diverse group of students by using Google Translator. It will also engage students and make them want to learn about other languages.

3.3. Teachers should be responsible and model appropriate actions when involved with technology.

3.3.1. 5. Posting a blog or a section on a classroom website that illustrates what the teacher expects out of their students with technology will allow students to see first hand what their teacher expects.

4.1. Teachers should participate and contribute with community learning experiences to improve student's skills in digital technology.

4.1.1. 1. Having students use the software tool called Popplet will allow them to tell stories about themselves so they become familiar with one another and the class.

4.1.2. 2. Creating a Jeopardy game using 'Hyper Studio' will allow teachers and their students to work together to complete an activity and learn new information in a fun and engaging way.

4.2. Teachers should act as leaders of a community in the classroom when demonstrating new technology to students.

4.2.1. 3. Teachers can hold technology seminars that students and other community members can attend to learn about new technology.
