About the team



Dragon Education

Creator

The team behind Dragon Education and Training have over twenty years of experience working with teachers, students, and schools to provide imaging solutions. Dragon Education and Training was created in response to the demands of teachers for whom the most valuable resource is knowledge. Teachers want to know how and why they want to understand and to use their understanding to help them deliver better outcomes for their students. Teachers also want to be engaged in order to feel that their professional learning is valuable to their school, their students, but most importantly to themselves. As available technologies continue to emerge and transform the way we do things, both in the classroom and in the real world, it is important to remember that knowing what the technologies are and how to use them is only a small piece of the puzzle; what is far more important is understanding why.

All of Dragon’s courses and programs are developed and presented by teachers for teachers, and they aim to address both the how and the why in order to make your professional learning: Relevant, Accessible, Hands-On & Applicable
