Chapter 1 of Digital Community, Digital Citizenship
2010) addresses the history of educational technology in K-12 since the
advent of desktop computing. It also addresses the evolution of the
development of educational technology standards by the International
Society of Technology in Education (ISTE), which to this day serve as
the international standards in area of using technology for teaching and
learning. Links on this page help readers under this evolution.

ISTE Standards - the shift from technology to citizenship.
The International Society for
Technology in Education (ISTE) created standards for students, teachers
and administrators. Each set of standards has gone through a major
upgrade. In these upgrades we see the shift in our understanding of how
technology is to be viewed. Among the many new perspectives that emerge
from the new standards is a focus on citizenship, digital community,
creativity and innovation and placing technology in a social context.

Rules by John Medina. Medina's book about what brain research tells
us about, among other things, how we learn. This link takes you to his
- Digital Citizenship by Mossberger, Tolbert &
McNeal. (MIT Press, 2008). "Digital Citizenship examines the
impact of the Internet on civic engagement and political participation.
This book is a compelling and informative study that brings new survey
evidence to bear on the power of the Internet. Through careful and
detailed exploration, the authors demonstrate that the Internet brings
important benefits to society and government, while those outside the
digital revolution suffer from the lack of access to Internet
technology."—Darrell West, Department of Political Science, Brown
- I frequently use Dertouzos concept from this book called the ancient human - that very old part of us that drives
all the new things we create. From the Amazon description: "In The Unfinished
Revolution, Dertouzos unmasks the deficiencies of our present
systems and makes a compelling case for "human-centric computing," which
has the potential to dramatically reduce our techno-aggravation, while
improving our productivity and effectiveness."
