Teacher Training & Certification Programme
Pearson offers teachers training and certification programmes to help them maximise the benefits of DigiClass to their students and school. Training is provided online and teachers can access it anywhere through the link provided. Those who complete the assessments will be awarded a certificate of completion by Pearson.
Evaluation for the courses are conducted on two levels
Level One: This level measures the teacher’s knowledge of the DigiClass solution (both Interactive Device and DigitALly usage). Teachers can take this assessment immediately after training on the DigiClass solution. The assessments are conducted to encourage teachers to acquire the basic DigiClass skills required to effectively use the solution. Completion of this assessment awards the teacher a Basic Level Certificate.
Level Two: This assessment is conducted a year after continuous use of DigiClass solutions. This final assessment gauges the teacher’s grasp on their advanced knowledge of DigiClass solutions, thus encouraging them to explore the various DigiClass features on their own and further enhance their skills. At the end of this assessment the teacher is awarded the Advanced Level Certificate.
