When Joseph South joined the International Society for Technology in Education as chief learning officer in 2017, the group was primarily known for its annual conference. But like many associations, ISTE realized the event alone would not be enough to attract and retain members.
“The question was what impact ISTE standards were having the other 360 days of the year when people are not at our conference,” South said. “It’s my job to create the professional learning experiences educators need to understand ISTE standards and how to apply them in their work.”
