Learner: It would be worth asking the potential hires how they have built a professional learning network in face-to-face and social media encounters. If a teacher is willing to learn and share the rest will follow.

Leader: Ask them how they curate and share their teaching resources.

Citizen: Ask them about how they use images, audio, and video in their work? What is their knowledge level of fair use and copyright. This will help them lead students in respecting intellectual property.

Designer: Ask them to give you an example where they really felt they and their students used technology to support student learning. for your own purposes, one suggestion I would make is to take some time to review a webinar, Learning First, Technology Second, with Liz Kolb. It is free with your ISTE membership. In the webinar, and book by the same title, Liz shares her Triple E Framework and includes several examples of students using technology. It might be helpful in evaluating their answer.

Facilitator: Ask them how they have helped students own their learning goals.

Analyst: Ask them to define formative and summative assessment and to give you a few examples of how they use technology to support their analysis of the data.

Find out what they may know about ISTE Student and Teacher Standards.

There are so many different questions you could ask, but you have to think about which are most important to you. Like I said, if you seem to have a collaborative individual who is willing to learn a lot can follow.

What have you been thinking about asking so far?

Subject: Interview Questions related to ISTE Educator Standards

Hi All!  I am an elementary school principal who has the privilege of opening a brand new school in our district (opens fall of 2018).  In hiring a staff, I would like to focus questions on the ISTE Educator Standards. Has anyone done this and/or have other interview questions for educators that would be supportive of finding personnel that have these qualities? I would love some new ideas! Thanks!
