ISTE Standards

Learning, teaching and leading in the digital age

Each of us has a key role to play in the transformation of education, but none of us has to go it alone. The family of ISTE Standards works in concert to support students, educators and leaders with clear guidelines for the skills, knowledge and approaches they need to succeed in the digital age. Together, we can innovate education.
