Welcome to the ISTE Standards Community!

This open network (formerly “Project ReimaginED”) is dedicated to all things related to the ISTE Standards. The ISTE Standards provide a framework for amplifying or even transforming teaching and learning with technology. This community is dedicated to discussions and resources related to the ISTE Standards. Topics may include adoption and implementation, the individual standards themselves, the standards in specific grade bands or content areas, and anything else you want to discuss or share.

Combine forces to transform education.
