NETS*S. Second, there is a chart of the Alignment of the OETS to the 2007 NETS*S and
the ODES that could be addressed using OETS. Finally, there is a list of the nine OR
Diploma: Essential Skills. This includes 1. Read and comprehend a variety of text and 2.
Write clearly and accurately.
2. Strategies for a fourth grade class. Relate to a standard.
A.Communication and Collaboration Interact and collaborate with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media. As a future art teacher I would love to use SKYPE as a way to bring in a famous artist into the classroom. SKYPE also allows the artist to use white board in real-time. It would be great if the artist could demonstrate art techniques to my students.
B.Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making Identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation. I can create an activity that would depend on finding information on different kid friendly sites. These sites could help the students expand their knowledge on art and artists.
3. The digital divide. Many students will have access to computers at home and are familiar with technology, and other students will can lag behind because they do not have these resources. Technology is a luxury item to many people.
