About the ISTE ET Workspace

The ISTE Emerging Technologies Task Force workspace is a place where educators can share and discuss the effective use of specific technologies in their contributions to student learning. The ET Task Force is co-chaired by Kathy Schrock and Ferdi Serim

This workspace is being provided courtesy of the National Network of Digital Schools. The results of discussions here will populate the database that will be launched at NECC next month in Atlanta, providing examples of best practice to help people understand the process.

Each particular technology will be added to a database that, in addition to describing the technology also reports the need it serves, the characteristics of the district where it is used, and the requirements of using it successfully, to assist others in deciding whether it is desirable and/or practical to adopt this technology in their particular situation.

The workspace is divided into two parts: on the ground floor, each category of the overall ET Matrix has its own room for “job alike” discussions. The second level is organized aligned with the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, each category also having its own room, to facilitate discussions across the roles of each person contributing to the development of the database.
