Looking forward to a much needed winter break? If you have time amidst all of the festivities and fun things you have planned with family and friends, consider taking advantage of your time off with Kaplan’s professional development resources. Searching for classroom curriculum ideas and activities or taking time to learn something new during your time off can help you recharge and prepare for the new year. We have a variety of E-learning professional development opportunities to support you and your educational program. Here’s just a quick overview of our online resources for teachers:
As a proud partner of the Child Development Associate® (CDA), and the Council for Professional Recognition, Kaplan offers online professional development through a membership program called Quorum. The Quorum® online course platform provides 24/7 access to more than 140 hours of quality, interactive training for educators and CDA candidates. Completion of these E-learning courses goes towards the CDA requirements aligned to the CDA Competency Standards that support the corresponding early childhood setting (family child care, center-based infant toddler, and center-based preschool).
You can elect to purchase an individual 1-year membership for $120.00, or you can take individual courses, such as Teacher Leadership, STEM in the Preschool Classroom, and Honoring All Families, for $30.00 each.

Kaplan also offers professional development for teachers through the Kaplan-sponsored Classroom Management for Early Learning community on edWeb. The community helps educators learn about creating a positive learning environment for students and families by connecting them with knowledgeable authors, specialists, and presenters. You can watch a webinar live or view the recorded version at a later time and receive credit if your state accepts edWeb CE Certificates.
Be sure to check out edWeb's Top 25 edWebinars of 2017! A total of five Kaplan-sponsored webinars made the list, including the top spot with 4,500 live and on-demand views of Understanding and Addressing Challenging Behaviors in the Classroom.
