COVID-19 has shown it is more critical than ever that district and state education leadership supports effective use of technology for learning and establish a clear, shared vision around essential educator skills and competencies necessary for student empowerment.
In this report, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conducted a systematic review of each state’s reopening and/or remote learning guidance documents. Through this review, ISTE identified states that have established a clear vision around the role of technology, as measured by their support for critical educator skills and competencies grounded in the ISTE Standards for Educators. ISTE also identified states that are lacking these critical elements, and make key policy recommendations toward improving education through the use of technology.

“D2L is proud to support this important work by ISTE to guide states, districts, and educators as they transform education and empower students through technology. The ISTE Standards for Educators and the state leadership toward their adoption are critical to success for teachers and students. This is an important time for our education system to learn from the challenges encountered with COVID-19 and bounce forward, not back – as we create better learning environments for our students, teachers, and parents – and accelerate the future of teaching and learning.” – John Baker, President and CEO, D2L
