In 2019, ISTE and the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) launched an international effort to revise the ISTE Standards for Computer Science Educators and develop the next generation of computing education standards to support rigorous and equitable computer science (CS) education for all students.

We need your help to develop a set of standards that provide clear guidelines on what computer science educators should know and be able to do in the classroom; serve as aspirational goals for educators to guide their professional learning and stretch their teaching practice; and establish benchmarks for professional development providers as they craft computer science experiences.

We believe empowering students to excel as critical thinkers and problem-solvers through CS will create active, collaborative, lifelong learners who are prepared to succeed.

Here’s how you can participate:



Use our toolkit to lead a feedback forum with colleagues, at a conference or via social media.

Join the ISTE Standards Community, a network dedicated to all things standards-related, to stay up to date on the refresh. And be sure to engage with @iste on social media!



Find resources aligned to the ISTE Standards.

The ISTE Essential Conditions are the 14 conditions necessary for system readiness.

The Lead & Transform Diagnostic Tool is a free tool that evaluates your system measured against the Essential Conditions.
