ISTE-T Program Details
  • Participants can enroll as an individual or with a cohort with their school district.
  • Program length is 12 months.
  • The program operates in Canvas, our online learning platform.
  • Participants must be active in their use of technology in their instructional practices to be successful in completing the program requirements.
  • Throughout this course, participants compare their instructional technology use against the five ISTE Teacher Standards (twenty rubrics) by submitting current and/or past examples of how technology is incorporated in their instructional practices. Evaluators teaching the course provide coaching and feedback on each submission.
    • The types of technologies used by each participant are not evaluated. Any type of technology chosen by the participant can be used. Evaluators assess how the technology is used and whether the process meets the requirements of the standard/rubric.
  • Upon successful completion of the program, a participant will show themselves to be an educational leader who is very knowledgeable in the ISTE Teacher Standards, and who exemplifies the highest level of technology integration in the classroom.
