ISTE - the International Society for Technology in Education - is the largest ed tech conference in the United States, and this week it has announced its intention to become something more. There are two major announcements: first, a set of "new standards for education leaders, which focus on equity, digital citizenship, team and systems building, continuous improvement and professional growth, the organization announced," and second, a partnership with D2L to create something called ISTE-U, which will be a professional learning hub for ISTE members. A number of courses are listed, many being developed in partnership with organizations like Google. The courses themselves cost money and "are eligible for graduate-level credit at an additional fee ... at Dominican University of California."
