Sandy, Utah — Sept. 20, 2016 —Performance Matters today announced it will add online professional development content from DeeperDive Learning to its Truenorthlogic PD system, a key component of the Performance Matters Educator Professional Growth Platform. Designed to support the cycle of continuous educator improvement and its direct connection to student achievement, the Professional Growth Platform is a single online source for managing professional development, conducting evaluations and observations, and fostering inter-rater reliability among observers.

“Today’s time-starved, multi-tasking teachers are challenged to keep up with numerous research-based learning strategies, technology applications, and differentiated instructional practices,” said Dr. Pamela Bruening, founder and CEO of DeeperDive Learning. “Our courses not only prepare teachers with a personalized, socially interactive learning experience, but also provide them with an integrated approach that weaves content, context, and technology tools to support them in immediate classroom application.”

DeeperDive Learning differentiates itself from other professional development providers by showcasing convenient, actionable 21st century learning that can be used in the classroom immediately. Courses are offered asynchronously — at the teacher’s own pace and time – and are available on any web-enabled mobile device or screen, saving districts and schools time and resources. Courses are tagged and can be searched and ordered individually through the Truenorthlogic PD Premium Library.

“Successful education leaders are taking a 360-degree view of professional growth and working with teachers to offer a wide variety of options that meet their instructional and professional growth needs, when and where they need them,” said Jeanette Haren, chief product officer and co-founder at Performance Matters. “DeeperDive Learning’s library of flexible, high-quality courses is among the few collections that meet the stringent requirements of today’s K-12 educators. We are pleased to include them in our Premium Library and to provide teachers access to the courses that will help them perfect their craft and achieve their personal goals.”
