Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and 
technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and 
innovation in both face‐to‐face and virtual environments. Teachers: 

  1. promote, support, and model creative and innovative thinking and inventiveness.
  2. engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources.
  3. promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.
  4. model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students, colleagues, and others in face-to-face and virtual environments.
