The ISTE
National Educational Technology Standards (NETS•S)
and Performance Indicators for Students
1. Creativity and Innovation
Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes
using technology. Students:
a. apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes.
b. create original works as a means of personal or group expression.
c. use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.
d. identify trends and forecast possibilities.

STUDENTS WILL OBTAIN THESE BY COMING UP WITH IDEAS FOR THEIR OWN CACHE, FINDING THE CACHES I HAVE HIDDEN, AND DETERMING WHERE THEY THINK THEIR TRAVEL BUGS WILL GO.

2. Communication and Collaboration
Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance,
to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students:
a. interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments
and media.
b. communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats.
c. develop cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with learners of other cultures.
d. contribute to project teams to produce original works or solve problems.

STUDENTS WILL OBTAIN THESE BY WRITING THEIR OWN DESCRIPTIONS OF THEIR CACHES BASED ON THE HISTORY OF THE SITES WE HAVE CHOSEN, SINCE GEOCACHING IS KNOW WORLD WIDE THEIR WILL BE A GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING OF OUR AREA BASED ON THEIR DESCRIPTIONS.

3. Research and Information Fluency
Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. Students:
a. plan strategies to guide inquiry.
b. locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and
media.
c. evaluate and select information sources and digital tools based on the appropriateness to specific tasks.
d. process data and report results.

STUDENTS WILL OBTAIN THESE STANDARDS BY CREATING THEIR OWN CACHES, AND LOGGING WHERE THEIR TRAVEL BUGS HAVE GONE AND HOW FAR THEY HAVE GONE.

4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make
informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. Students:
a. identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation.
b. plan and manage activities to develop a solution or complete a project.
c. collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions.
d. use multiple processes and diverse perspectives to explore alternative solutions.

STUDENTS WILL OBTAIN THESE STANDARDS BY DETERMING WHERE TO PLACE THEIR CACHES.

5. Digital Citizenship

behavior. Students:
a. advocate and practice safe, legal, and responsible use of information and technology.
b. exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports collaboration, learning, and productivity.

a. understand and use technology systems.
b. select and use applications effectively and productively.
c. troubleshoot systems and applications.
d. transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies.

STUDENTS WILL OBTAIN THESE STANDARDS BY USING WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED AND APPLYING IN TO OTHER WEB 2.0 SITES THAT THEY WILL BY USING IN MY CLASS.

PA Academic Math Standards
2.2, 2.3, 2.5, 2.6 will be met learning how to used latitude & longitude, figuring out math problems to determine latitude and longiture, and in figuring the milage accomplished by the travel bugs.

PA Academic History & Science Standards
This will be determined when the actual questions have been created to determine latitude and longiture.
