Two-Phase Certification Program
Enjoy the convenience of a completely online program offering three years of certification.
ISTE has updated the Certified Educator program, it is fully online and now consists of two phases. Participants must complete both phases in order to earn their certification. Certification is open to all educators—teachers, curriculum coaches, library media specialists, principals etc. Certification is valid for three years.
Phase 1: Complete Online Course (14 weeks)
Participants post in discussion boards and complete other activities as assigned. Participants can plan to spend 5 hours per week on average completing the activities.
The course is facilitated by Eduscape instructors who have earned their ISTE Certified Educator badge and have received additional training from ISTE to be qualified as ISTE Certified Trainers.
Phase 2: Build Your Portfolio (6 months)
Eduscape supports participants in this phase with monthly office hours and a private Facebook group that is monitored by Eduscape ISTE Certified Trainers.
I am so thankful for the skills, knowledge and experience I have gained through the ISTE certification course taught by you and this certification process. It has helped me to assist students and other teachers to get through this particularly difficult transition to Remote Learning here in NYC.
