International Society for Technology in Education
The International Society for Technology and Education (ISTE) is the leading professional organization for educators working in the field of educational technology. ISTE has released technology standards for students, teachers and administrators that address a range of technology-based competencies for those groups. These standards can be found on the ISTE website at http://www.iste.org/.
“The ISTE Standards work together to support educators, students and leaders with clear guidelines for the skills and knowledge necessary to move away from the factory model. They provide a framework for rethinking education, adapting to a constantly changing technological landscape and preparing students to enter an increasingly global economy.” (ISTE)
“The ISTE Standards for Students are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process.” Click here to view the ISTE Standards for Students on the ISTE website.

These standards will deepen instructional practice, promote collaboration with peers, challenge educators to rethink traditional approaches and prepare students to drive their own learning.” Click here to view the ISTE Standards for Educators on the ISTE website.
