“ISTE has long championed creativity as essential to learning, teaching and school leadership through our widely adopted digital age standards, the NETS, and events like ISTE 2012.  We must continue to work together to ensure that educational technology is included in our shared roadmap to success and achievement.  In the globalized economy that the President speaks of, few things are as important as a highly skilled labor force.  And that labor force is the result of educators who have relevant digital age skills as well as creativity, passion, and professionalism”.
