The Teacher Challenge is made up of free professional learning challenges where educators are stepped through weekly tasks that increase their skills while being supported by mentors.

The Challenge is open to any educator who wants to increase their skills.

From experience we’ve found the more we support and help teacher’s increase their own skills, the better they are able to support their students use of online technologies for learning.

Participants can complete as many of the tasks as they like and in any order.

It’s all about you choosing when you want to learn, while being supported by mentors would assist you with your learning!
