In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, ISTE is working with schools, families and communities to ensure that the learning keeps going. As part of these COVID-19 response efforts, the ISTE Certification team is working with its partner organizations to temporarily move the ISTE Certification program to a fully online format until September 2020.

Focused on pedagogy. Based on the ISTE Standards.

ISTE is focused on pedagogy, not tools. It’s not about edtech 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.
