In a world where rapid advances in technology have a profound impact on the ways we work, communicate and live, education has struggled to keep pace. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards work together to support educators, students, and leaders with clear guidelines for the skills and knowledge necessary to move away from the factory model. ISTE provides a framework for rethinking education, adapting to a constantly changing technological landscape, and preparing students to enter an increasingly global economy. As educators, we are preparing students for the future, empowering them to become lifelong learners, and providing them with the skills to face future challenges resourcefully and creatively. It’s not about using digital tools to support outdated education strategies and models; it’s about tapping into technology’s potential to amplify a student’s capacity for collaboration, creativity, and communication. It’s about leveling the playing field and providing all students worldwide with equitable access to digital learning opportunities. Transforming education requires us to rethink how we teach and learn. The ISTE Standards act as a roadmap for bold, innovative educators and education leaders to re-engineer their schools and classrooms for digital age learning no matter where they fall on the journey to meaningful and effective education through technology. In this tutorial, we will review: What are the ISTE standards for Educators; What are the ISTE standards for Students; What are the ISTE standards for Administrators; What are the ISTE standards for Coaches; What are the ISTE standards for Computer Science Educators.
