Technopoly EDU: The Self-Paced Professional Learning Game

The Birth of Technopoly EDU  


For the past four years, I have had the pleasure to collaborate with two inspirational educators, Julie Lyle and Sarra Smith. While the three of us work in three different districts with a wide array of needs, we all had one thing in common: the teachers we serve need access to professional learning opportunities and resources beyond what each of our one-man departments can provide. Thus, Technopoly EDU was born! This self-paced professional learning game allows teachers to explore and choose a technology tool that is relevant to their content area, right when they need it, all from one resource! Educators playing Technopoly EDU are earning digital credentials as they progress through the levels in each of the 9 Properties and receive a badge to show their accomplishments.

The three of us have been pouring our hearts into the development of this game for nearly two years. While we are each launching it and implementing it differently in our districts, it is so exciting to see it come to fruition!
