The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) publishes the internationally recognized ISTE Standards, which are the premier standards to guide the use of technology for learning. ISTE is updating the standards, beginning with the ISTE Standards for Students (K-12), and they are seeking the input of thousands of educators and other stakeholders during the process. During this highly-interactive forum, attendees can share their perspective on the fundamental question: what do students need to know and be able to do to be successful in the future? Participants will also be able to provide feedback on what’s obsolete and missing in the current set of standards, as well as their insight into what ISTE should consider and include in the next set of standards.
