ISTE Certification

ISTE Certification is a new 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.

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.

ISTE Certification provides education leaders with a way to identify a school or district’s educators who are leading the way with digital age teaching practices. The certification also provides a vendor-neutral edtech credential that can be used in staff hiring decisions.

Through the ISTE Certification process, teachers will participate in professional learning based on the ISTE Standards and transformative pedagogy.
