Build the capacity of educators, leaders and instructional teams to put the ISTE standards into practice by facilitating active learning and providing meaningful feedback.


The overlap between teaching teens and teaching adults is never more apparent than in the area of active learning. I wrote about the importance of active learning in professional development for adults, and highlighted how active learning is a best practice for students and educators alike but will look different for each group.

Feedback is a second part of ISTE 4.5b, and is one of the “dos” I emphasize in a post focused on the value of in-house experts for professional development. Ongoing, meaningful feedback is an important part of effective professional development.
