Certified PD Provider

Your teachers will earn 10 High-Quality PD (HQPD) hours / credits for each PowerPD they complete!

You probably don’t need to be reminded that 2 out of 3 teachers are considering quitting the profession after the grueling 2020. The Department of Education has published data showing that teacher PD increases not only student outcomes but teacher job satisfaction.

Brain Power Academy is an approved provider of High Quality Professional Development (HQPD). Our courses count toward your teachers’ requirements to renew their teaching licenses.

We are certified in several categories of HQPD that are very sought after and hard to find, including “Special Education” and “Comprehensive Health”. Our courses are designed to help your teachers grow in their profession. This can increase their job satisfaction, and improve their morale as they learn new online and in-person teaching methods to guide their students to reach their full potential.

How is Brain Power Academy PD Different?

  • Online, self-paced PD.
  • Immersive, interactive, and fun.
  • Practical: filled with unique exercises you can implement tomorrow, and downloadable resources.
  • No more PowerPoint! Engaging videos of our teaching staff speaking, with explanatory animations right on the video.
  • Developed and taught by teachers, neuroscientists, doctors, education experts, and education software experts.
  • Certified. Hours count for High Quality Professional Development (HQPD) requirements, e.g. for re-licensure.
  • Certificate of completion you can download any time.
  • Based in the science of the brain, and the latest research on effective teaching.
  • Inclusive: Special Ed, RTI, and General Ed approaches.
  • We surveyed and studied the needs of thousands of K12 teachers: for PD to give your teaching team the credits they need, and the topics they want.
  • We focus on the needs of the “whole teacher”. This includes techniques and resources for your classroom; and also tips for your career development and moral.
  • All PDs are dual-purpose: Useful for distance teaching and in-person

-We Use Advanced Video-

No more PowerPoint! Our newest PDs use our own Affective Mental Immersion method.

Traditional e-courses make you choose between lifeless slides and a talking-head video that has no mnemonic content to follow except spoken words.

In our immersion you see and connect with a trained instructor (often with a PhD or MD) and at the same time you see advanced video and graphical content embedded directly into the videos. This increases accessibility for different types of learners, and you will feel a better connection with the subject matter and its presenter.

Examples of our What Your Teachers will Get

Below are brief summaries of several of our “PowerPD” as well as “Brain Bite” courses that have been most popular with K-12 public school teachers.

PowerPD” courses are designed to empower your teachers with highly-practical, self-paced online PD focused on the needs of today and tomorrow.  Your teachers will receive 10 hours or credits or points for High Quality Professional Development (HQPD) for each PowerPD they complete. 

Stress Management:
For Teachers & Their Students

Are you and your colleagues feeling it? Studies show more than 4 out of 5 educators have felt debilitating stress during most of this bizarre year — and our kiddos are feeling it doubly from both home and school. Through this online self-paced PD, you will gain practical, scientific techniques to reduce anxiety and stress that you can use immediately for yourself and for your students.

Distance Learning for Special Education:
Tips & Hacks

Distance teaching is still here for many districts, and will re-emerge often to accommodate future situations and learning styles. In this online PD, you will learn best practice for using digital tools and distance teaching techniques, with an emphasis on the unique challenges of educating Special Ed students.

IEP Goal Tracking: Remote and In-Person

IEP goal tracking is always hard – and now made worse by distance learning platforms and by the lag in IEP progress in students transitioning back. Here you will gain proven tools and strategies for digital IEP goal tracking and progress reporting.

SEL and Distance Learning: Empowering Your Students

After this PD deep-dive, you will be able to apply 5 new tools to improve your students’ social-emotional learning (SEL) during distance learning, and when you transition to in-person.

“Brain Bite” Course Examples

Brain Bites are highly focused courses. Each focuses on a specific topic, and are highly practical. We choose the topics based on our ongoing surveys and communications with thousands of teachers, so they are topical and timely.  

Brain Bite: “How to Talk to Students About Scary News and Difficult Topics”

How to discuss troubling news with your students productively? Here we share practical, evidence-based tools to use with your students. Part of our New Roadmap for Civics series.

Brain Bite: “Engaging Students with ADHD”

This focused Brain Bite will provide you with tools and strategies to keep students with ADHD engaged. The PD is designed to last: it addresses remote, hybrid, and in-person learning!

Brain Bite: “Tapping Into Student Motivation”

Do some of your students lack motivation? Will this year’s complex factors make it hard to re-engage them? Here we offer strategies to reach slipping students, and get/keep them motivated and engaged!
