TwT eLearning course

Microsoft has created a comprehensive eLearning course, Teaching with Technology (TwT), to help support you in your preparation.

TwT includes a self-assessment to help identify your learning gaps, eLearning content to help you fill those gaps, summative assessments, and a range of learning activities and tutorials to encourage application in the classroom with students.

The TWT course is focused not on measuring expertise with specific tools, but rather on how to apply the right tools to a particular learning objective, or to increase productivity. The TwT self-assessment and summative assessments are good indicators of readiness. Most often, educators who pass the MCE exam have put extensive time into considering the material and how it could be applied to a number of different education contexts.

In addition to using the eLearning curriculum, you could attend a workshop, work with a peer coach or mentor, or observe other educators who are particularly skilled in this area.

Accessing study material

The TwT self-assessment, eLearning curriculum, summative assessment and associated tutorials and resources can be accessed free.

If your school has an IT Academy membership, you can access the TwT eLearning via the IT Academy site. IT Academy includes an online reporting system and detailed tracking, letting administrators see how educators are progressing in their learning.
