The National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) Project was initiated by the Accreditation and Professional Standards Committee of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). ISTE has emerged as a recognized leader among professional organizations for educators involved with technology. ISTE's mission is to promote appropriate uses of technology to support and improve learning, teaching, and administration. Its members are leaders in educational technology, including teachers, technology coordinators, education administrators, and teacher educators. ISTE supports all subject area disciplines by providing publications, conferences, online resources, and services that help educators combine the knowledge and skills of their teaching fields with the application of technologies to improve learning and teaching.The primary goal of the NETS Project is to enable stakeholders in PK-12 education to develop national standards for the educational uses of technology that facilitate school improvement in the United States. The NETS Project is developing standards to guide educational leaders in recognizing and addressing the essential conditions for the effective use of technology to support PK-12 education.The NETS for Students (NETS•S) Curriculum Series Project represents a continuation of ISTE's desire to provide educators with the means to implement the NETS. Science Units for Grades 9–12 is specifically designed to provide high school teachers with curriculum to meet the Grades 9–12 performance indicators of the NETS.
The NETS for Students are divided into six broad categories. Standards within each category are to be introduced, reinforced, and mastered by students. These categories provide a framework for linking performance indicators, listed by grade level, to the standards. Teachers can use these standards and profiles as guidelines for planning technology-based activities in which students achieve success in learning, communication, and life skills.
1. Basic operations and concepts
Students demonstrate a sound understanding of the nature and operation of technology systems.
Students are proficient in the use of technology.
2. Social, ethical, and human issues
Students understand the ethical, cultural, and societal issues related to technology.
