Standards for the Digital Age:


Do some analysis in small groups: Run each of the standards through Wordle (http://www.wordle.net). What similarities and differences do you see?

What's the big picture being painted by the standards? How will you communicate that to your faculty? Find an image that communicates that big picture and add it to the Google presentation. Be prepared to describe it in one minute.
