The ISTE Standards for Students are a learner-driven process of exploration, creativity and discovery using technology for learning.
Number one — I'm an Empowered Learner,
I set goals and pursue 'em with fervor.
My learning is up to me, it's not passive,
My brain learns best when I am digitally proactive,
Number two — I'm a digital Citizen,
I stay safe on all the sites I'm visiting.
I use technology to make a difference
With power comes responsibility, you getting it?
I'm a Knowledge Constructor — number three,
I carefully select and evaluate what I read.
Curate media oh so brilliantly
(And) I think critically about source validity.
Four — I'm an Innovative Designer,
That means I solve problems, major and minor.
Start with empathy, ideate, then prototype,
Test and iterate, that method is so nice,
I'm a Computational Thinker — five,
Improving any process I can find.
Writing algorithms and testing in beta,
Analyzing to find the trends in the data.
I'm a Creative Communicator — (that’s) six,
Like I put this in a rap song to make it stick.
I could use different media or tools,
Like infographics to make my point get through.
Seven — I'm a Global Collaborator,
I might connect with students way over the equator.
Digital technology makes the dream come true,
I had a virtual field trip with a kid in Peru.
That's seven ways that I can be
A life-long learner in this 21st century.
What kind of student do I want to be?
It's my path, that's up to me!
