A few months ago I had the opportunity to take a class on project based learning and inspiring it by creating the perfect essential questions. I took this information and created a set of Technology Essential Questions based on the International Society for Technology in Education Standards (ISTE) for Students. 


There are 6 basic standards and each standard has 4 sub-standards. I created an essential question for all 24 sub-standards. In this blog post I am going to explain how one of these essential questions can be use AT ANY GRADE LEVEL to inspire a project. 

Primary:

Intermediate/Middle:
I grouped these students together because they are using very similar technology tools. Here are a few ideas:

Secondary:

Hopefully this gave you and idea about how one technology essential question can be used across the grade levels. The things that change are the technology tools used and the project it leads into. The academic content area can be anything you can possibly imagine. I’m all about integrating technology into the content areas and these posters are a great way to get students talking and thinking about using technology to learn. 


Thanks for reading!
