Michael McCann, Wentzville School District’s technology coach, is one of only five educators in the state to have become an International Society for Technology in Education [ISTE] Certified Educator.
This recognition is awarded to educators who have successfully demonstrated competency in the ISTE Standards for Educators and recognizes those who demonstrate the effective use of technology for learning in meaningful and transformative ways.
“To earn this international certification and recognition demonstrates Mr. McCann’s focus on innovative instruction and technology in the classroom, which will ultimately benefit our teachers and our students,” said Wentzville School District Director of Technology Greg Lawrence.
To earn the distinction of ISTE Certified Educator, McCann completed extensive professional development around designing, facilitating and assessing learning using technology and passed a rigorous evaluation of his portfolio by ISTE Standards evaluators.
“Those who have earned the certification have proven themselves innovators in their classrooms and mentors for other members of their school or district,” said ISTE Chief Executive Officer Richard Culatta. “As an ISTE Certified Educator, Michael joins a distinguished community of educators from around the world who share their commitment to lifelong learning and their passion for engaging students in active, authentic learning.”
