ISTE’s Empowered Learner Standard
This standard is central to all of the ISTE Standards for Students and serves as a foundation for all of the other 2016 standards. While a lot of educators are talking about empowering learners, not many are defining what that means or using research-based strategies to actually develop students as empowered learners. The science behind the standard, as well as rubrics for all of the criterion that create this standard are provided in easy to read, mobile friendly, and instantly usable resources.
