The Arizona Technology in Education Association in partnership with Edvolve is proud to be selected as one the Certification Authorized Providers for the International Society for Technology in Education. You can learn more about ISTE on their website at http://ISTE.org and AzTEA on their website at http://aztea.org/iste/certification/.
The ISTE Certification for Educators is a high quality professional certification for motivated educators wishing to transform teaching and learning with digital technologies. Using a blended learning model, you will participate in both face to face and online learning. You will complete four modules of learning activities over an eight week period with instructor assistance. Then you will have six months to assemble an eportfolio for review by the ISTE Certification Team.
This unique certification is based on the ISTE Standards for Educators. A cohort of dedicated educators will rethink and redesign learning activities with technology to empower and engage students in authentic and active learning.
