Technological advances are challenging the conventional approach to primary and secondary education. As leaders and educators explore the opportunities that educational technology brings, they must also consider how these innovations impact the process of learning and teaching. Learning, teaching and leading: A comparative look at the ISTE Standards for Teachers and UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers compares two of the most comprehensive and widely used models for implementing educational technology in primary and secondary education throughout the world. These models provide essential guides for leaders and educators to effectively plan for and launch sound, bold initiatives that engage and prepare teachers and their students for the digital age. This white paper provides an overview of each model, explores the similarities and differences between them, and examines how they can complement each other to catalyze effective learning and teaching with technology.
