No matter where you are on the path to technology integration, you'll encounter challenges and decision points at every step. Based on the 14 ISTE Essential Conditions, the Lead & Transform Diagnostic Tool offers education leaders a starting point for making the transition to a technology-rich and standards-ready learning environment.
The ISTE Essential Conditions are the 14 critical elements necessary to effectively leverage technology for learning. They offer district superintendents, CTOs, CIOs, school leaders and other decision makers a research-backed framework to guide implementation of the ISTE Standards, tech planning and systemwide change.
Evaluate a school’s progress toward technology integration with the Lead & Transform Diagnostic Tool. You'll get data that will help you identify where your system aligns with the ISTE Essential Conditions and where you have room to grow.
