“I just got the most amazing email from one of my teacher participants."
"This woman’s outlook on her school year is transformed! And it literally would not have happened if it were not for PopPD. Thank you for what you’re doing. I’m in tears over this!”
“In the past few years, I've been playing around with providing PD for my teachers virtually."
"PopPD gives me the ability to curate videos and resources I find online into pathways of content. I might even make my own videos! It's easy to use and helps my teachers focus on exactly what they need.”
- School Leader
“We needed to develop a virtual training for the teachers using our program..."
"...but without a Learning & Development specialist on our team, it kept getting pushed to the bottom of our to-do list. PopPD makes it easy for us to roll out our training to teachers through quick, actionable content.”

I'm a school leader. How do I pay for my teachers to take a PD listed on your site?
If you’re interested in purchasing a specific class for multiple teachers, send us a message for our group pricing. We can facilitate payments and assign multiple teachers to a class. If you’re looking to give your teachers a budget to use on classes they choose, reach out to set up an individual wallet for each teacher. We offer bulk pricing on credits and can facilitate payments.
I'm a school leader. Can I use PopPD's platform to host an asynchronous PD?
Absolutely! We know you’ll love the way you can easily create and curate trainings and resources into classes or challenges for your teachers. Some schools choose to use a“flipped classroom” model where teachers engage in the training part of a challenge on their own and use the collaborative time to implement the projects. Inside our platform, you’ll have the ability to add a video or PDF along with timestamped annotations to clearly mark your own notes or discussion questions.
I'm an EdTech company. Can I use your platform to roll out my PD?
Rolling out your new technology can be a challenge. Rather than trying to pull together a YouTube channel and a Facebook group, gather your teachers on PopPD- a platform they can trust. You’ll love our easy-to-use platform that is designed for implementation.
I'm a teacher. How can I get reimbursed for my PD?
Many schools will pay up front for classes or reimburse your purchase. We have a variety of resources available to help facilitate this process. If your school leaders are interested in learning more about PopPD, please share our information with them!
