NJCU and Eduscape Partner to Offer Graduate Credit for ISTE Educator Certification

 New Jersey City University (NJCU) has entered into a partnership with Eduscape that offers educators who complete the ISTE Educator Certification the opportunity to earn three (3) graduate credits. ISTE Certification is a competency-based, vendor-neutral teacher certification based on the ISTE Standards for Educators. It recognizes educators who use technology for learning in meaningful and transformative ways.

Supporting the ISTE Educator Certification is a logical fit for NJCU's Educational Technology Program, whose internationally-recognized and accredited online programs are leading the field in learning with project-based strategies, emerging technologies, and standards alignment.

“I am very excited about our partnership. Eduscape is a premier organization who has facilitated workshops for hundreds of thousands of learners empowering them to transform classrooms into engaging, learner-centered environments. This partnership offers teachers the opportunity to extend their learning even further by receiving graduate credits and the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree in Educational Technology at NJCU.” stated Dr. Laura Zieger, Chairperson of the Department of Educational Technology at NJCU.

Educators from across the United States and overseas have pursued the ISTE Educator Certification as a powerful indication of their commitment and knowledge of using technology in the classroom to drive pedagogy. Several award-winning schools and districts now use the Certification as a pre-requisite for outside professional development providers. It goes well beyond application-based certifications by empowering educators to genuinely integrate technology as part of their instructional design in deep and meaningful ways.

Why become an ISTE Certified Educator?

The ISTE Standards defines a new skill set that empowers educators to rethink and redesign learning with technology. ISTE recognizes individuals who can demonstrate and apply the standards, earning a distinction of an ISTE Certified Educator. 

Leaders are looking for those with a growth mindset to adapt, thrive, and lead learning with technology in their schools and districts. Earning the ISTE Certification demonstrates to leaders and colleagues those who have the initiative, drive, and skills needed to transform, personalize, and empower learning in the classroom and school.

Testimonials

"One of the things I enjoyed about this training was the collaboration. You can do so many things as an educator on your own, but when you have an opportunity to collaborate with other people, you can take away so much more. Hearing other people’s opinions and perspectives opens your mind up to things you could have been closed off to before. The content was outstanding!”

Laura Lucchetto, Technology Teacher & Integrator, Wyckoff School District
