Teaching & Learning Resources

Unpack the ISTE Standards: New flexible online resources for busy educators

Digital Learning Pathways is a new set of online professional development resources developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Metiri Group. These resource bundles provide a convenient, customized, and cost-effective way for educators at any level of technology readiness to implement the ISTE Standards into the classroom. Teachers take a pre-assessment quiz to determine optimal focus areas, and then choose their own path forward, reading or watching the professional development content from one of three pathways across any device.
