Our educators want and need better resources to help them work through the litany of challenges and opportunities students face, from things like AI in classrooms to mental health to teacher training and blended learning to stronger family engagement.
The old sit-and-get approaches of the past never were much good — and certainly won’t work now.
We built RocketPD because school leaders told us they wanted more from their professional-learning experiences.
Connecting our school partners to the top thought leaders in education
Delivering engaging professional learning on topics of strategic importance
Creating experiences focused on outcomes — accessible from anywhere
Unlike traditional professional learning, which stops when the session ends, each of our programs is designed to take your team on a deep, multi-phased exploration of their topic of interest.
We vet each of our thought leaders and design learning frameworks to ensure the value they provide quickly moves from theory to practice within your organization.
That’s because all of programs are:
If you’re a superintendent, principal, PD coordinator or curriculum director, all of our resources are available in one place and customizable to the needs of your schools. No more fruitless Google searches or worries over quality or consistency of programming. We offer everything from virtual, collaborative cohort experiences, to video-based courses, to customizable full and half-day sessions specifically built to meet the strategic needs of your schools and teams.
If you’re looking for ways to better engage your teachers and staff this year and support their professional growth, and if you’re tired of the same old, boring no-good PD experience, we hope you’ll stick around and explore our expansive universe of top-notch presenters and professional learning.
