Through this partnership, 1500 School District of Philadelphia Special Education teachers are receiving subscriptions to Sublime Learning eTeachables and extensive training, follow up and support provided by The Visual Leap.

The Visual Leap is a visual learning company located in Philadelphia and led by Jesse Berg, MSIT, MEd that uses visual, technology-rich strategies to improve teacher effectiveness and student learning. Berg, creator of “The Visual Leap Program in Visual Thinking” works with school districts to create research-based, professional learning solutions rooted in effective technology integration, cognitive learning theories and Universal Design for Learning.
