Abstract: The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has been publishing technology standards to be used in the classroom since 1988, and a version of these standards has been adopted by all 50 states. Yet, little peer-reviewed research or scholarly work exists that is specifically focused on these standards. In response, this paper will introduce, describe, and contextualize the ISTE standards. The researchers will then share their concerns about the standards before offering recommendations to teacher educators for addressing them.
