Get Connected

If you are looking for a dynamic professional development experience will inspire, engage, and move your audience toward actionable results, we’d love to connect with you.

They say that purpose is what you do for others. And passion is what you do for yourself. Michael and John are proud to bring both of these vital elements together through the consulting services we offer here at EMC² Learning. 

In short: we do PD differently. And we help busy educators make sense of the serious research and practical resources that will give them the power them bring playful pedagogy to life in classrooms of any age.

Engaging at the Speed of Life

At EMC² Learning, we’re passionate about student centered instruction, and we’re right there in the classroom with students each and every school day to figure out what works and where the passions of these young learners lie. We don’t teach content, we teach people. And that means paying particularly close attention to the things that make our students so fired up to engage in their myriad interests that extend far beyond the four walls of our schools. From Fortnite to football, LEGO to League of Legends, or Mario Kart to Monopoly — we study the science behind what makes games so addictive and exciting. Then working together, we set out to capture that same lightning in a bottle to create similarly compelling, intentional, and risk rich instructional design.
