The TESOL Technology Standards, gleaned from practice and research, focus on how English language teachers, teacher educators, and administrators can and should use technology in and out of the classroom. These standards build on work done by the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) Project in the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), but have a strong focus on pedagogy specific to English language teaching. They are designed to be applicable to teachers and students at a range of English proficiency levels in many English language teaching and learning settings around the world.
The TESOL Technology Standards Framework consists of two sets of standards: standards for language learners (i.e. students), and standards for language teachers. The complete TESOL Technology Standards Framework, which includes discussion of the research base, progress indicators, and sample vignettes, is available for purchase at the TESOL Bookstore.
