Technology Literacy for Educators

The Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) certification validates that educators have the global educator technology literacy competencies needed to provide a rich, custom learning experience for students.

Demonstrating technology literacy

Through a single exam, MCE demonstrates that educators have achieved technology literacy competency in six content areas, mapped to the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers, Technology Literacy

  1. Education policy
  2. Curriculum and assessment
  3. Pedagogy
  4. ICT/technology tools
  5. Organization and administration
  6. Professional development

MCE certification is ideal for educators-in-training, faculty of teacher training colleges, and in-service educators.

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

Note The certification exam assesses whether educators understand how to apply technology tools in the six different content domains, not whether they are proficient in using specific technology tools. If you are looking for information on getting certified to teach specific Microsoft products and technologies, visit the Microsoft Certified Trainer page.

School administrators: Consider integrating MCE certification into your teacher training or professional development program. The exam can be administered and proctored by educators on campus. You can purchase campus licenses via Microsoft Volume Licensing, through a Microsoft reseller, or from Certiport, Microsoft’s authorized MCE exam delivery partner.
