We’re thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with a new line of online professional development that’s being offered via Haiku LMS. It’s called the Digital Teacher Series, and it’s designed to give teachers the proficiency, tools, and confidence to use technology and web applications in the classroom.

They have an amazing faculty of instructors lined up to teach these courses.
The pedagogy is grounded in project based learning with choice in outcomes and job embedded activities. All instructors are being guided to embrace practices like proactive communication, radical collaboration, and to encourage creativity with guided inquiry.
