Focused on pedagogy. Based on the ISTE Standards. ISTE Certification is a competency-based, vendor-neutral teacher certification based on the ISTE Standards for Educators. It recognizes educators who use ed-tech for learning in meaningful and transformative ways. ISTE is focused on pedagogy, not tools. It’s not about ed-tech per se, it’s about what you do with the tech to transform learning and improve student outcomes.

Through the ISTE Certification process, teachers will participate in professional learning based on the ISTE Standards and transformative pedagogy. After completing the training, participants have six months to apply their learning and compile artifacts and reflections into a competency-based portfolio to earn ISTE Certification.

Steps to becoming an ISTE Certified Educator

  1. Attend the in-person workshop.
  2. Complete online coursework (6 weeks).
  3. Prepare and submit an e-portfolio to ISTE for review (6 months).
  4. Once submitted, ISTE Certification Evaluators will review the artifacts.
  5. Those who successfully meet the certification will become ISTE Certified Educators.

The course will include a two-day, in-person workshop followed by 6 weeks of online coursework.
