Back to school training sessions for educators


November 16, 2021 –  The results are in! Edge Factor empowered 900+ educators across North America with training webinars and workshops to help them maximize their Premium Edge Factor memberships. Educators were able to discover the thousands of videos, lesson plans, and activities we've created for students to go on a Career Journey.


Edge Factor’s free Back-to-School event was available in September & October for Educators and school districts to access pre-recorded sessions to help them explore the feature, functionality, and e-learning resources available with an Edge Factor premium membership.   The Back-to-School page received an incredible amount of views in only two months! The content was available to be shared during staff meetings for professional development, and reached thousands of educators before the new school year began.


It was an easy to use, self-navigated virtual event for K-12 educators. They were able to discover the age-appropriate content aligned to their local district school board's curriculum standards. Educators were able to watch pre-recorded practical workshops on: How to Login, Create a Class, Assign Content and more. 


Pre-recorded videos by Edge Factor, Vice President, Larissa Hofman provided Educators with an overview of the Edge Factor career journey. Our career journey moves through 4 key phases from Inspiration, Exploration, Preparation and Connection (IEPC).  These overview videos received a combined 250+ views. 


We want to take a minute to say a big thank you to the Edge Factor team members who made this event possible.   And thank you to all of the educators, who accessed and shared the free training tools in staff rooms and training sessions in schools and at home!
