Building A Better Approach to PD

At EMC² Learning, we're serious about helping teachers discover new and innovative ways to make practical shifts to a more student-centered style of instruction. But we know that real growth takes time. And teachers deserve more than a one-shot workshop when they're looking to keep their classes engaged all year long.

Let's change the game. Together.

EMC² Learning blends high-energy in-person training events, online instructional coaching and support, and on-demand access 24/7 to an ever expanding library of more than 600 fully editable classroom resources.

In short: it's a better way to play.

Traditional PD Rate of Implementation

Most teachers only experience traditional, workshop-based professional development, but the workshop model’s track record for changing teachers’ practice and student achievement is abysmal. Short, one-shot workshops often don’t change teacher practice and have no effect on student achievement.

They say that your favorite class is the one that you like the most. But your best class is the one where you learn the most. At EMC² Learning, we’ll teach you a better way to play, and help your class be both of those things. For every single student. Every. Single. Day.


We believe that providing students with resources that model and embody the core principles of Growth Mindset can be transformative for learners of all ages. As Carol Dweck writes, "Becoming is better than being: no matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment.”


Where most traditional edtech solutions create automated game-like softwares driven by machine scoring and rapid response to multiple choice style questions, EMC² Learning resources challenge students to fuse content knowledge with creativity to reach an ever-evolving personal best.


Each of the resources developed by EMC² Learning is carefully designed to maximize student engagement through an ever-evolving balance of skill and strategy. By helping students tap into the elusive state of Flow, teachers are able to create joyful, thought-provoking lessons that invite repeated play.

Engineered For Peak Performance

EMC² Learning’s resources use playful design to challenge students to go beyond basic fact recall and make use of their equally important creative problem solving abilities and critical thinking skills.

Authentic engagement challenges students to fuse content knowledge with creativity, pushes learners to increase time spent in those highest orders of thinking, and rewards thoughtful, authentic mastery of curricular transfer skills.

EMC² Learning’s student centered, feedback focused engagement strategies are designed to help teachers maximize the amount of time that their learners spend in those highest levels of thinking. Classrooms become places of joy, enthusiasm, and deep learning — made possible through pedagogical approaches that help students and teachers alike build confidence and capacity with each new day.

Bloom's Taxonomy Scaffolding Support for Higher Order Thinking
