The Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs) were developed to support the redesign of teaching in teacher education programs so that ALL teacher educators are prepared to model and integrate technology in their teaching. Teacher candidates who receive consistent and appropriate experiences with technology throughout their teacher education programs will be more prepared to integrate technology into their own classrooms.
The TETCs represent diverse perspectives from an array of teacher educators, and were supported by the following organizations:
- The United States Department of Education Office of Educational Technology (US DoE)
- International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE)
- Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE)
- Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)
- National Technology Leadership Coalition (NTLC)
- American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE)
The TETCs are posted on this page to bring greater visibility to the project and encourage teacher educators to consider how the TETCs might be applied in practice. Add your voice to the conversation by following @SITEconf and using the hashtag #TETCs.
