ISTE releases draft of new tech standards for students
The International society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has recently completed a draft of its new National Educational Standards for Studentdes (NET*S). The first national standards for students was issued by ISTE in 1998. These standards have been adopted by 45 U.S. states including Colorado (view the states). "The new student standards mark a shift in focus away from 'competency with tools' and toward the 'skills required in a digital world' says Don Knezek, CEO of ISTE. We can all contribute our thoughts to these new student standards by completing an online "refresh survey". Click here to read the draft of the NET*S.
