Using ANOVAs, these groups were analyzed independently to determine if statistically significant differences existed within each group. Finally, it was determined that a statistically significant increase in score was present if teachers were aware of the existence of the standards, and had read and understood the standards.The NETS-T project identified six categories for the national educational technology standards that teachers should adhere to. These categories are: 1. Technology Operations and Concepts 2. Planning and Designing Learning Environmentsanbsp;...
