Quick background: I'm an ICT teacher and I'm also one of the technical administrators for the site: http://www.e-Portfolios.net issue: I'm looking for some advice/opinions from Heads of Department, Mentors, tutors and other experienced professionals who regularly mentor other teachers. As you're probably aware the new Standards kick in this September and in anticipation of that I was tasked to update the Core Standards to the new Teachers' Standards on the e-Portfolio system. Seemed simple enough.. that is until I got round to actually having to decide what to add and what to leave behind.. To make sense of what I'm saying, please login here: http://www.e-portfolios.net/login_view.php Teacher ID: Demo Key: 1234 Click on "Prof'l Standards" and then "new Standards" You'll notice these are the new Teachers' Standards. Now Q1) Is the "Preamble" a Standard...and would you expect evidence from your trainee(s) for this? if not.which is what I originally thought) justify it as the standards document clearly says this should be met by <u>all</u> teachers? So surely this should be evidenced? Q2) in Part 1, there are 8 standards but each had bullet points. So I added these as 1.1, 1.2 etc Is this right? or should I only have added the 8 core standards instead? Please justify your answer.. and remember, when looking at evidence, would you like to see it all under one standard or seperated into its "scope"? Q3) I've added all 3 statements in Part 2 as standards, is this right? if not, please do justify it. Look forward to reading your comments/suggestions... Thanks for reading!
