ISTE Standard 6: Facilitator

Educators facilitate learning with technology to support student achievement of the ISTE Standards for Students. 



6b. Educators manage the use of technology and student learning strategies in digital platforms, virtual environments, hands-on makerspaces or in the field.

The video below highlights the use of technology and student learning strategies in an online Moodle course, WOU's learning management system.

6d. Educators model and nurture creativity and creative expression to communicate ideas, knowledge or connections.

Communication is a vital piece of my career, often "making or breaking" student experiences. As such, I take care to communicate clearly in multiple ways. Below are two examples of such. The first image is one that I created to encourage students to meet with their pre-education advisor. Both creatively communicate the content while being clearly on message. The second image is from a weekly email that I send to my students, alerting them to resources and important upcoming dates. Each term I include a different animal GIF; this term was cats, clearly.
