Educators in the state of Texas now have an opportunity to learn how to use emerging technologies and apply them to the classroom while earning Continuing Professional Education (CPE) requirements.

Atomic Learning has recently been approved as a provider by the Texas State Board of Education enabling staff in districts that have a subscription to earn CPE credits for tutorials they view from Atomic Learning’s library of tutorials.

In addition, any districts who committed to the Texas Steps Up Initiative are invited to further expand their professional development efforts with Atomic Learning. This funding gives educators an opportunity to have access to the vast library of tutorials and tech integration projects from Atomic Learning. And, the content is aligned with the updated TEKS standards as well as Common Core standards, based on Academic Benchmarks' review.

Atomic Learning offers a large selection of training sessions to teach educators and students the latest in technology. The most recent content includes YouTube and Facebook for Educators, where educators can learn how to connect and use popular social media avenues effectively with students. The series on iPad and iPod touch introduce the basic features and functions of these products. With a library of options, Atomic Learning facilitates learning new technology and encourages technology integration in the classroom.
