METC is proud to offer this high quality professional learning opportunity through our partnership with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). ISTE Certification is a competency-based, vendor-neutral teacher certification based on the ISTE Standards.
 
This digital credential recognizes educators who understand how to use edtech for learning in meaningful and transformative ways. Educators will participate in an eight week blended learning cohort based on the ISTE Standards and transformative pedagogy. Beginning with two onsite training days and culminating with an eportfolio, content will be taught in the following four modules: Designing For Diversity; Personalized Learning and Alternative Assessments; Digital Learning Environments: Design Thinking and Computational Thinking; and the New Digital Citizenship. 

Once the eight week blended learning course is completed, participants have up to 6 months to complete their e-portfolio of 9-14 artifacts to be submitted to ISTE for review. Access to a certification portal is provided where participants can get feedback from all cohorts as they prepare 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. 

Participants will:
  • Discuss technology in education through an online discussion forum
  • Determine levels of technology integration by examining lesson plans and activities
  • Curate digital resources that support the ISTE Standards 
  • Design lessons and activities aligned to the ISTE Standards for Educators
  • Create an eportfolio of artifacts aligned to the ISTE Standards for Educators
  • Provide feedback to cohort peers within an online community
  • Expand your professional learning network
