Solution Tree
Developed specifically for grades 6-8, this resource presents classroom-ready lessons that support the ISTE Standards for Students. Use the lessons, which focus on four essential skills--communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity--to take instruction and learning to the next level through the use of technology. Each chapter includes strategies for developing authentic learning experiences and ends with discussion questions readers can use for personal reflection. (1) Understand that real transformational change results from teaching and learning, not ever-changing digital devices; (2) Give students opportunities to exercise their voice, choice, and creativity using multimedia and digital tools; (3) Implement practical novice-, operational-, and wow-level lessons and tips for using digital tools in classroom lessons; and (4) Help students keep themselves and their data safe online and make ethical decisions on the Internet.
