The Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) program provides robust tools that help educators drive best-in-class integration of information and communication technology (ICT) into classroom instruction. Mapped to the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Educators, MCE program resources include a free self-assessment, free customized eLearning, and the Technology Literacy for Educators (62-193) certification exam. Each of these learning and validation steps aligns to six key aspects of ICT and pedagogy integration:

  • Education Policy
  • Curriculum & Assessment
  • Pedagogy
  • ICT/Technology Tools
  • Organization & Administration
  • Professional Development

The Technology Literacy for Educators (62-193) exam does not assess proficiency in using specific technology tools but whether an educator or administrator understands how to assimilate ICT tools into the six content domains listed above. This exam is designed to validate these skills in pre-service and in-service educators.

Microsoft offers a comprehensive eLearning curriculum, Teaching with Technology, to help educators prepare for this rigorous exam.

School administrators: MCE represents a valid and reliable way to measure the effectiveness of your investment in ICT and professional development. Educators holding an MCE certification have the tools and skillsets to break though limitations of geography and resources, and begin to apply their knowledge to provide a customized learning experience for their students using technology.

The exam can be administered and proctored by educators on campus.
