Allows teachers to learn at their own pace, provides them with clear success criteria to measure progress, and creates a sense of personal accomplishment and excitement among all teaching professionals.
This is truly a program that is relevant to today’s learners of technology. Teachers feel much more comfortable using and introducing certain programs to students if they can navigate it easily as well.

I was in the test group for Skycrest Christian School and I returned for the training today. I honestly just showed up to tell my teammates how incredible this program is! In 17 years of being a classroom educator, this is by far the best PD format ever! Bite-sized, manageable, applicable ways to implement tech in the classroom to help students stay engaged and focused. I am your biggest cheerleader!!

Anytime, Anywhere & Approved.
Edge•U is a program that allows teachers to pick the topics they want to learn about, gives them the opportunity to learn the tools and skills on their own time, at their own pace, and awards badges to participants for applying various topics in the classroom. We're partners with Ashland University, and the program is approved through the University, which permits teachers to turn in their points for Contact Hours and Graduate Credits!
