The NETS and NCATE
For more than 20 years, ISTE has served as one of 22 national organizations charged with developing the standards that the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) uses to accredit colleges of education throughout the United States.
ISTE has helped transform teacher preparation programs through its standards to integrate technology into learning, teaching, and leading. The refreshed standards—Technology Coach, Technology Director, and Computer Science Educator—are pending NCATE approval. These build on the original Technology Facilitator, Technology Leader, and Secondary Computer Science Educator standards.
