The International Society for Technology in Education(ISTE) has named Joseph South, a strategic national edtech expert focused on evidence-based learning transformation, as the organization’s chief learning officer.
South will lead ISTE’s newly formed Learning Team. The group will continue the work already being done to provide members with professional learning experiences and resources grounded in the ISTE Standards. It will also expand this work to include more flexible options for members in both online and face-to-face settings.
“We have amazing ISTE members who are experts at effective digital learning. We want to do more to amplify their voices and share their experience with other educators,” South said. “We would also like to assist our members as they consider the large number of edtech solutions that come their way by helping them engage in rigorous, rapid-cycle evaluations of new products and services, and then share their findings with other members so we can all benefit from each other’s experience.”
