2022 Annual Report
In 2022, we began returning to school after two years of major disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all of its disruptions, the pandemic provided an opportunity to rethink and reimagine the future of education. ISTE and leveraged this moment to set a better course for the future and bring the joy back to education. We reconnected in person at ISTE events to share what was learned during the disruption and chart a better course forward. We expanded the ISTE Certification for Educators program and offered more free ISTE U courses than ever before. We added additional benefits to ISTE membership, while keeping it affordable. And in a historic move, we began the process of merging with ASCD, another education nonprofit, bringing together expertise in technology and innovation with deep knowledge of curriculum and instruction to better serve educators throughout their careers.

2021 Annual Report
As the ongoing pandemic brought a second year of disruption to education, ISTE worked with our community and revamped our programs to ensure the crisis education was experiencing didn’t go to waste. After all, disruption can be a catalyst for accelerating innovation! With this in mind, we expanded our online professional development opportunities and made them more flexible; simplified access to core programs like the ISTE Standards and ISTE Certification; and used virtual platforms to invite more educators into our global community. We also added benefits to ISTE membership, and made it more affordable than ever before, to ensure educators worldwide had access to ISTE’s best-in-class professional learning and passionate community.
