You work hard to be an exceptional educator. You already have the job and are busy day in and day out innovating teaching and learning for your students. You may even feel that you already have a firm grasp on technology tools like iPads and Chromebooks. But have you considered getting an additional certification in a job-specific role or on a particular device? There are many advantages to earning a certification. You will:

  • Stand out among your peers.
  • Ensure your knowledge is up to date and that you are proficient in it.
  • Provide additional value to your school by holding a certification in a specific area, becoming the “go-to” in that area.
  • Show your willingness and initiative to continue your education.
