Professional Development Learning Network (PDLN) creates online EdTech professional development courses for K-12 educators. Badges and micro-badges are awarded based on competency, rather than time PDLN’s team of experienced educators and EdTech trainers curate content and develop original video courses designed to meet the needs of 21st century educators. Assessments are created with the goal of immediate classroom application. The rigorous evaluation system, credentialed evaluators, and optional university credit, ensure the value of its badges. Courses are aligned to international ISTE-T standards.
