NETS‐T Response Standard Five

1 Aug

Standard 5:

Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership

Teachers continuously improve their professional practice, model lifelong learning, and exhibit leadership in their school and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources.


a. participate in local and global learning communities to explore creative applications of technology to improve student learning

b. exhibit leadership by demonstrating a vision of technology infusion, participating in shared decision making and community building, and developing the leadership and technology skills of others

c. evaluate and reflect on current research and professional practice on a regular basis to make effective use of existing and emerging digital tools and resources in support of student learning

d. contribute to the effectiveness, vitality, and self-renewal of the teaching profession and of their school and community



Teachers should use technology tools in creative ways around the community to help students learn. Teachers should model leadership in the area of technology, by being a life-learning of technology and help teach others. Teachers should want to learn about the most current and up-to-date technology resources.

 My strengths in this area

I feel as if I am and want to be a lifelong learner when it comes to technology. I try really hard to at least know the new and different tools out in the world. I want to learn! I am still young enough to not ‘be set in my ways’ yet. In fact, I am trying to figure out what works! Technology is always changing and I love to follow the newest trends. I would like to point out that I remember when Facebook was strictly for college students!

My weaknesses in this area

I need to be more willing to share what I do know. I sometimes think it is easier to do rather than teach, especially unwilling adults. Instead of being the one to always make a PowerPoint, I need to sit down and show my peers how to do it!
