Wyoming Department of Education > Uncategorized > ISTE, WDE to Offer Educators Certification in Digital-Age Teaching Practices

Dear Superintendents,

We shared exciting news this week in partnership with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). One hundred Wyoming educators will have the opportunity to earn the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Certification for Educators with financial support from the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE). The certification is the only competency-based certification focused on digital-age teaching practices. Here is a link to the press release to share with others. 


L-R: Dr. Michelle Aldrich, Ilaine Brown, Superintendent Balow, Governor Gordon, John Bole. WDE leaders attended the Governor’s signing ceremony for Wyoming Apprenticeship Week.

The annual Innovations  in Learning Conference took place in Gillette this week. Along with speakers, panels, and breakout sessions, students and educators were recognized for their contributions.

The Shoshoni CodeWranglers from Fremont County School District 24# stole the show  at the conference and  took time to visit Gillette’s Maker Space, Area 59, where they made personalized dog tags. These talented kids recently participated in the University of Wyoming Hackathon, a competitive sprint-like team event where hackers collaborate on chosen projects to solve using blockchain technologies, where they walked away with $27,000 in prize money.
