Professional Development

Our Approach

Transitioning to student-centred class discussions takes time and dedication. So does technology integration. That’s why we don’t simply sell software and walk away. We see ourselves as partners in meaningful change for educators that want to improve their practice and classroom experience. Here’s how we do that…

Virtual PD Sessions

Book one of our Instructional Strategists to run an interactive PD session with your staff. Make is an introductory session for beginners or a deep dive into specific advanced use cases.

Classroom Visits

Teachers can request a virtual classroom visit where one a member of our team will act as the “co-teacher” to help implement Parlay in the classroom:

1. Assist with lesson planning and experience design
2. Facilitate the class discussion in real-time (virtually)
3. Review engagement data with teacher (if desired)

Real Time Chat

When a teacher needs help or something isn’t working as expected, a Parlay team member will be available for chat support. During normal hours, we usually respond in 5 minutes or less!

Teacher Certification

Teachers can complete the self-paced Parlay Certified Educator program which teaches them how to use Parlay, and asks them to demonstrate proof of successful classroom implementation.

Coaches Suggestions

Our Instructional Strategists comb through usage data at your school / district and make personalized recommendations to tech coaches about how they can best support your faculty.

Support Docs

Parlay has a comprehensive and searchable knowledge base, a teacher resource folder, and a YouTube channel for teachers and coaches to review on their own.
