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.

Focused on pedagogy. Based on the ISTE Standards.

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.



To be successful in this program we believe it is important to consider these questions.

  1. Are you an educator who is interested in professional growth and who sees the ISTE Standards as a roadmap for using technology to learn?
  2. Are you an educator who has experience and comfort using varied technology in the classroom?
  3. Are you an educator who is comfortable with and has experience successfully taking online professional learning (courses)?
