Have you checked out the sessions at ISTELive 23?

The Edge•U Poster SessionBring Your PD a Spark of Joy” will take place Wednesday, June 28, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm at the Terrace Ballroom Lobby, Table 35 with Jill DuBois.

Traditional professional development models force teachers into stagnant one-size-fits-all packages or expensive postgraduate programs that may never impact instructional practice. Edge•U offers educators pertinent microcredentials (badges) based on effective implementation of high-impact strategies supported by engaging technology.

We hope to see you there!
