Sticky Re: ISTE Standards and Amateur Radio


Hi Steve, 

Thank you very much for your offer of the Lesson Plans.  If you could also post in the repository a generic age-appropriate Lesson Plan outline plus a kind of “fill in the blanks” Lesson Plan form then I believe that you will get more (potential) Lesson Plans from members of this group.  

Case in point: take me.  I am an engineer who visits high school and universities to interface with students on Amateur Radio and other technical topics (e.g., the AMSAT CubeSat Simulator, POTA opportunities, Raspberry Pi projects).  

I have noticed a chasm that seems to exist between teachers and many technical persons.  So, these supplemental tools I suggest will help garner additional quality plans.  

With us able to view Lesson Plans (dated and with version number) in our repository, we can review them, use them as examples for writing plans, and propose edits and updates to improve selected plans.   

Can we make this so?  

Thank you for your support!

One of the goals of this group is to create a resource for teachers to be able to post and find lesson plans/lesson ideas for individual standards. I will be posting a standard each week, in the hopes that people can create/post lesson plans or ideas that help to address the standard.

We all know that teachers have to post lesson plans for administrators to see/approve. This is one hurdle that I think we can help overcome as a group.  Eventually, I will take these and create a sort of repository that is searchable.

I will start out with the ISTE standards, then will move onto other standards such as the NGSS, etc. In order to keep things organized, I ask that you please post your ideas as a message in each topic. For example, if there is a topic labeled ISTE 1.1, post your lesson ideas under that topic. If you have lesson ideas for other standards, please create the topic with a sort of standardized look, such as ISTE 1.1, NGSS MS-PS3-1, etc.

Also, we know that teachers connect learning across multiple disciplines. We also know that principals like it when a lesson hits multiple standards. If a lesson/idea you post meaningfully hits multiple standards, it would be great if you could include those standards in the description. 

Let's all help each other out here, and make it easier to include amateur radio in schools!
