    Instructor-led NETST Certification (JMPE 101)

    • Seek to incorporate more student usage of technology in your classroom

    Course Description

    • This facilitated, 15-week online course provides a step-by-step consideration of each NETS•T rubric, highlights the skills needed to master each rubric and focuses on the creation of an Individual Professional Development Plan that guides the acquisition of educational technology skills. The course also provides tips on the types of teaching artifacts required to build a digital portfolio, and instructions for writing reflections.
    • Within a virtual community of practice, learners develop methods and strategies for the effective integration of technology to support instruction; design learner-centered, technology-enhanced learning activities for use in the classroom; and apply tools and techniques for assessing student learning.

If more time is needed, learners can take up to 1 year to complete their portfolio.

NETS•T Evaluators compare responses and revisit any variance found in their ratings.

    The site license for schools or school divisions includes t raining of one (1) Certified NETS•T Evaluator; separate fee applies for training additional Evaluators.
