From AI to Digcit, the Hottest Topics
Are at ISTE U!

In just a few days, you can take a deep dive into the critical edtech topics you need to know more about and earn graduate-level credit while you’re at it. It’s all happening at ISTE U, where the next series of instructor-led courses starts Oct. 3. And, as you’ll see, the course lineup is focused on the topics educators tell us they’re most interested in:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Digital citizenship
  • Future ready librarianship
  • Computational thinking
  • Learning sciences

These 15-hour, cohort-based courses were developed using the latest learning science research and will help you transform your teaching practice for the digital age. Thanks to our partnership with Dominican University of California, ISTE U courses are eligible for graduate-level credit – just one more reason you’ll want to join in.

Check out all the instructor-led courses, then save your seat!

Bring Digital Citizenship to Your Classroom in Meaningful Ways!

As students spend more time online, it’s critical that educators like you are able to guide them in becoming proactive, empowered, successful digital citizens. Two ISTE U courses (one at no cost!) and a FREE upcoming digcit event light the way!

 

Grow empowered digital citizens

Students can do powerful things in digital spaces if they understand what it takes to flourish as a digital citizen. In the ISTE U course Digital Citizenship in Action, you’ll discover creative ways for students to connect with people across the world, follow their curiosity through inquiry-based models, and contribute respectfully as digital citizens in virtual communications. This 15-hour, instructor-led course includes ongoing support from a digital citizenship expert instructor.
