Digital age learning
ISTE Standards (formerly the NETS) for Students (ISTE Standards•S) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge students need to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly global and digital world.

Simply being able to use technology is no longer enough. Today's students need to be able to use technology to analyze, learn and explore. Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities.
ISTE Standards for Students resources
ISTE offers a host of free resources to help teachers and administrators learn about the ISTE Standards and how to use them.

Seal of Alignment
ISTE awards a Seal of Alignment to resources that prepare participants to meet the ISTE Standards.

Resources earn a Seal of Alignment after rigorous review by ISTE Standards experts to ensure they align with the ISTE Standards for Students, Teachers or Administrators.
