Penda’s online platform was designed to be simple for teachers to use, but we also set teachers up for success with on-demand training
that provides an overview of the features and functions of the Penda platform and walks through our data-rich reports.
When you’re ready to dive deeper, Penda’s Professional Learning staff can deliver standards-based professional learning experiences —
in person or remotely — for teachers, academic coaches, principals, and administrators that focus on increasing effectiveness.
These learning experiences offer just the right blend of theory, research and models of human learning.
Support for Educators from Day One and Beyond
On-Boarding and Training
Penda offers many professional learning experiences, both online and on-site, to
train teachers, administrators, coaches, and others on using Penda to ensure that
you maximize your investment, have a seamless experience implementing Penda,
and increase student achievement.
24/7 On-Demand Customer Support
As simple and intuitive as Penda is, you may still have questions along the way.
We’re here to support you around the clock with helpful tutorials, toolkits,
articles with commonly asked questions, and live customer support.
Engaging All Learners
While Penda is designed using principles of gamification that naturally engage
students and motivate independent learning, in partnership with the Schlechty
Center, we offer an online professional development course that will deepen
teachers’ pedagogical understanding, dive into lesson design using Penda, and
build skills to enhance student engagement.
Supporting Effective Online Teaching
Remote teaching requires specialized skills which many teachers did not learn in
their teacher preparation programs. In partnership with the Schlechty Center,
we offer an interactive, online leadership seminar designed to help educational
leaders support teachers in the transition to remote teaching.
