ISTE Standards for Students: Knowledge Constructor
Do you want to know how students can navigate and organize the vast amounts of information at their fingertips? Do you want your students to be self-reflective about the knowledge they are constructing for themselves? Do you want to learn how curation can be a valuable, meaning-making activity? ISTE’s new Digital Learning Pathways, created in partnership with the Metiri Group, are designed to help busy teachers deepen learning with digital tools. In this course you will interact with research, best-practice strategies, teacher self-assessments, rubrics, real-life scenarios of practice, digital learning strategies, sample lesson plans, and more.
As a result of participation, teachers will know what it means to develop students as knowledge constructors, what attributes can be developed to deepen knowledge construction, and effective strategies to support students in constructing knowledge. Users can earn a certificate of completion and a badge after completion of a knowledge assessment.
This course will provide users with the knowledge and strategies necessary to enable students to be knowledge constructors in the classroom setting. ISTE member price: $40.00 and non-member price is $45.00

The Knowledge Constructor standard deepens and expands traditional skills for the digital age within the ISTE Standards for Students. The Knowledge Constructor standard supports the skills that students need to conduct and compile research in a world with new tools and vast, easily-accessible information. It supports them as they become savvy, capable evaluators of the information they find. The standard also encourages teachers and students to think beyond traditional research papers as a representation of knowledge, most notably in the emphasis on curation as a vital practice. And last, the Knowledge Constructor standard pushes students to conscientiously make meaning for themselves and for others as part of the learning process and in pursuit of answers to legitimate problems. 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.

This was a great description of what it really means to be a Knowledge Constructor – it is kind of an allusive concept but this really makes it achievable!
