The purpose of this workshop is to provide ”Just in Time” training through an blended interface for K-12 educators based on the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T). These standards are the basic technology skills every educator should possess. In the process, educators will develop their own skills and discover what students need in order to meet the NETS for Students. 21st century skills and assessment also provide educators the tools and information necessary to make solid decisions about how to best facilitate the educational experience from start to finish. The layout of the interactive course will include “21 essential strategies and intuitive tools to meet the needs of the 21st century educator” while the information will assist in setting learning objectives, selecting appropriate 21st century web 2.0 literacy tools, deciding on curriculum content, and determining strategies for effective learning. The main goal of this “21st Century Skills for the 21st Century Educator” workshop is to establish, facilitate, and maintain an environment that is learner focused. To determine 21st century skills and assessment areas, educators must ask themselves, “What do I want to know about my students that will help me determine what to teach, how to teach, what technology to employ, and where to start the educational experience?” There are many areas, but certain areas are essential when planning Webbased and technology infused learning incorporating computer proficiency skills, learning styles, and a learner’s desired outcomes.
