Digital-Age Skills for Learning, Teaching, Leadership and Teacher Preparation
The ISTE Standards (formerly known as the NETS) have served as a roadmap since 1998 for improved learning and teaching. They help measure proficiency and set goals for what students (ISTE Standards•S), teachers (ISTE Standards•T), and administrators (ISTE Standards•A) should know and be able to do with technology in education. Our proven leadership in developing benchmarks and guiding implementation has resulted in broad adoption of the ISTE Standards in the U.S. and many other countries.
