Verizon Mobile Learning Academy

A free professional development course for educators

Verizon Foundation, in partnership with the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) and the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Technology in Education, is launching the Verizon Mobile Learning Academy, a virtual, moderated professional development course offered to teams of educators for free.

The course, based on promising results produced by the professional development model delivered in the Verizon Innovate Learning Schools, includes five modules developed around ISTE standards. Course modules are designed to help teachers, administrators and tech coaches implement effective mobile learning initiatives in their schools and classrooms. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Johns Hopkins University will be offered to teachers completing the Verizon Mobile Learning Academy courses.

Registration for the Verizon Mobile Learning Academy will open in Fall 2014. If you would like more information, click here.
