It's no shock that the education community is stronger than ever. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve built such a collaborative group of people that are passionate about elevating education and we've been able to use this community to learn from and share knowledge and skills. 

Summer Refresh is bringing together the education community for a FREE 2-day virtual PD event. Summer Refresh is all about upskilling, collaborating and giving you content that you can use in your own classrooms! 

Did we mention that you're eligible to earn PD hours from these sessions? Sounds like a no-brainer to me!

 

Be a part of something special!

Our SMART Ambassador team is an innovative and inspiring group of over 1000 educators worldwide. If you'd like to join this fabulous community, you wont want to miss these Summer Refresh Sessions:
