- Stage 1: If selected, successful candidates will be invited to the quarterfinal stage of training which will last for five weeks. About 200 teachers will receive 40 hours of introductory technology skills.
- Stage 2: Around 100 of quarter-finalists will be chosen to attend semifinal stage of training which will also last for five weeks. During additional 40 hours of training, participants will dig deeper into technology learning basics of coding and visualization to creating digital stories.
- Stage 3: Only 25 most successful and hard working teachers will become finalists of the project and will be invited for a Tech Age Teachers Conference for 10 days. Conference will be held in Tunis during which participants will receive even more advanced skills in technology and creative teaching methodology.
