Reaping the Benefits of the ISTE Standards for Educators

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

James Madison University ISTE Standards for Educators Certification, an ISTE Mastery Level Seal of Alignment Program, engages teachers in a deeply reflective, intensive process to align their instructional technology practices to the teacher standards set forth by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). This opportunity is for self-directed learners who are confident in their use of technology. Participants in the program develop their skills to become technology leaders at the school and district levels.
This session provides an opportunity to explain the overall scope of the program and its benefits to teachers and administrators. Interested parties will leave with the following information:
• Participant options.
• Program length.
• The program formats.
• Cost, CEU’s, and graduate credit.
• Educational technology use requirements.
• Coaching and feedback.
• A successful completion of the program, what is means for the participant.
The JMU ISTE Standards for Educators Certification program has been in existence since 2002. In 2008 the change to the new Teacher Standards took place, and we are currently changing to the new Standards for Educators. Prior to 2012, the program was a Virginia school district face-to-face experience. In 2012, the program utilized a distance learning approach and extended its opportunity nationally and internationally.
I have been an evaluator since 2008; working at the local level, and in 2012 I became Program Coordinator, working with both international and national groups.
