Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers for the Future of Learning

New teachers enter classrooms that are both technology-rich and rapidly evolving. That’s why ISTE is continually curating learning materials and experiences for professors, faculty and other teacher educators to support teacher education programs throughout the world.

When you incorporate these training and development tools and experiences into your curriculum today, you ensure that preservice teachers are:

  • Ready to use technology purposefully to deepen student learning.
  • Able to adapt to using a wide variety of technology for various classroom situations and environments.
  • Prepared to teach and lead within the classrooms and schools of today and tomorrow.
