JMU Outreach and Engagement Programs: ISTE-T Certification
JMU Outreach and Engagement
Developed and accredited by James Madison University, the ISTE-T Certification is a 12-month professional development and portfolio-based assessment program for K-12 teachers, technology resource teachers, coordinators, technology coaches, and librarians. Since 2003, ISTE-T-certified teachers have obtained a competitive advantage for hiring and promotion by mastering 21st century instruction and learning in the classroom. Developed by teachers for teachers, ISTE-T is rigorous but flexible and affordable. Schools can use it with any existing professional development program. In 2015 ISTE awarded the ISTE-T Mastery Seal of Alignment to James Madison University, which has since been renewed in 2017. ISTE found the JMU system to be a well-designed and robust assessment system that provides strong evidence for teachers’ achievement of the ISTE Standards for Teachers.
