Abstract: Technology Integration into classrooms is an important factor in the preparation and professional development of teachers. However, a single course, may not be enough to prepare teacher candidates to infuse technology in within their instructional practices. In this paper we explore how a midwestern teacher education program is addressing this challenge by developing a micro-credentialing system to address the ISTE standards for educators. The micro-credentials are designed to engage teacher education candidates in a process that provides them opportunities to apply and model technology infusion within courses and throughout their teacher education program. Promising outcomes from this initial work have led to further development of the micro-credentialing system.
