I love the idea of using the ISTE standards in interviews. This is something that I am now going to investigate for the department I work with. I think it would be a great idea to provide the standards ahead of time, making sure to include that implementing the standards is an expectation of the job. I really like the idea that someone proposed earlier in the discussion of having the applicant translate the standards into layman's terms. As I've studied the standards in the past, taking this step has really helped me to gain a deeper understanding. After having the applicant review the standards, I might ask them to rate themselves on how they've implemented them in the past (ex: proficient, meets, exceeds). Then, I would ask them how they might achieve higher levels of implementation in the future.

I've enjoyed reading everyone's post for this discussion. Thank you, Beth for beginning such a great discussion post!

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!
