Response to NETS-T Standard 1

Standard 1: Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity

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:

a. promote, support, and model creative and innovative thinking and inventiveness.
b. engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources.
c. promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.
d. model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students, colleagues, and others in face-to-face and virtual environments.



  • Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter to integrate creativity through different mediums 
  • Teachers model creative thinking
  • Encourage students to explore things and solve problems using digital tools
  • Allow the students to reflect creatively
  • Teachers use technology as a learning tool to advance the student in many areas
  • Teachers share knowledge with students and colleagues in person and in virtual environments

Strengths:  I allow my students to reflect in different ways, such as verbal, drawing a picture, or using manipulatives. I also use different manipulatives in the classroom and during instructional time. I collaborate with my colleagues face-to-face and through email. I also use the internet for ideas in the subject I am teaching.

Weaknesses:  I do not use technology to facilitate experiences in the classroom.  I do not let the children solve problems or explore using digital tools or resources.
