About the Series:

Microsoft has teamed up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events aimed at supporting school leaders and classroom educators in benefitting from the features provided by a range of Microsoft tools. The focus of these events is to help institutions who are looking to use technology to enhance their in-class delivery and remote teaching.

Event Summary:

Are you interested in becoming a Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE)?  Join us as we explore the key aspects of the examination, top tips for preparation, and an overview of the 21st Century Learning Design course, which underpins the MCE examination.  This is a summary session designed to give people interested in becoming an MCE a detailed overview.

Session Overview:

This session will cover:

  • The core aspects and logistics of the examination
  • The key principles of 21CLD, including the different pillars, the rubrics, big ideas, and decision trees
  • An overview of different Microsoft applications that may be included in the examination
  • An overview of the question types

Given the MCE exam is rooted in pedagogy and teaching and learning principles, this session is primarily aimed at educators. However it is open to the wider education community where there is an interest in teaching with technology.
