Description: Through the ISTE Certification process, teachers will participate in 30 hours of dynamic in-person and online professional learning based on the ISTE Standards and transformative pedagogy. This workshop is the two-day in person professional learning.  We will set you up to begin the online modules at the end of this workshop. We will facilitate and support the online portion of your learning as well.

After completing the training, participants have six months to apply their learning and compile artifacts and reflections into a competency-based portfolio which will be evaluated by ISTE, the only organization that awards the certification.

Steps to becoming an ISTE Certified Educator

  1. Attend in-person workshop (1-2 days)

  2. Complete online coursework (5 weeks)

  3. Prepare and submit an eportfolio to ISTE for review (6 months) - the educator will be provided access to a certification portal where participants can get feedback from their cohort while preparing their portfolio of artifacts and reflections.

Once submitted, ISTE Certification Evaluators will review the artifacts. Those who successfully meet the certification will become ISTE Certified Educators.
