NECC – NETS-A Release Celebration

Here are my notes from the National Educational Technology Standards for Administrators (NETS-A) Release Celebration here at NECC 2009 in Washington, DC.

  • The new NETS-A are a big update from the previous NETS-A. They emphasize change, should be a systemic road map for leaders, and also are designed to be aligned with the recently-refreshed NETS-S and NETS-T.
  • Here are the new NETS-A standards:
    • Visionary leadership
    • Digital-age learning culture
    • Exellence in professional practice
    • Systemic improvement
    • Digital citizenship
    • Intel: across countries, the building and/or district leader can either be a huge catalyst or a huge barrier. [Like I’ve said time and time again, “if the leaders don’t get it, it doesn’t happen”]
