For educators: we partner with you

At AceraEI, we believe teachers are facilitators of discovery, rather than “deliverers of content.” Our teacher training and leader development programs help educators bring out the best in their students.

High-engagement learning relies on teachers to create interesting opportunities for kids
With AceraEI, you'll learn to innovate and create alongside enthusiastic and supportive peers.

For teachers

Teachers work extraordinarily hard in support of their students, leaving little to no time for professional development and the mastering of new material. As a result, STEAM kits, curriculum binders, and technology often sit in school closets, gathering dust.

AceraEI mentors provide in-person training for our project-based STEAM modules. These hands-on lessons are flexible, and can serve as enriching supplements to your school curriculum. They can also function in other formal or informal learning areas, including arts, sciences and tech classrooms, family engagement events, or after-school or summer programming.


Teachers who train with AceraEI report: 

  • increased confidence in constructing open-ended, high-engagement opportunities for their students;
  • increased confidence in teaching programming, robotics, coding, and electronics – highly relevant subject areas for students, where many
    teachers today have little exposure;
  • increased student exposure and interest in STEAM topics;
  • an overall increase in student engagement, curiosity, and joy in learning.
Acera's video production module is a great value for educators. The facilitator Linwood has the right mix of professional video skills and classroom savvy to lead an effective workshop for educators. In this workshop I learned my way around an excellent free video editing software program and was already on my way to editing and producing my first video. In a short period of time we were able to build skills and convince to use the software and introduce students to it!

For school and district leaders

All school leaders want their schools to be engaging, creative, innovative, joyous and safe.

But lack of time and resources are ongoing obstacles to achieving their vision. School leaders also need advice and instruction on how to implement high engagement learning programs and best SEL practices.

  • increasing access to STEAM
  • project-based learning
  • instructional design for diverse learners
  • rethinking classroom management

  • classroom, playground, and Makerspace development
  • cultural and linguistically sustaining practices

Our approach includes whole school professional development, ongoing mentorship, leader support, and access to a comprehensive array of resources.

AceraEI can also train your team to act as agents of change and innovation in your school or district. Our goal is to help you feel empowered to lead professional learning in your own community.
