Problem Statement & Description

Sometimes in teaching work becomes procedural and routine. Some systems/platforms for the management of professional growth experiences are not inspiring and do not engage the teacher into the professional growth process. GROW is a web platform that provides teachers stimulating online-content as they engage in the professional growth process. GROW intentionally includes videos with kids to remind teachers of their importance. As teachers complete steps in their professional growth process, they will receive badges to their online Twitter account.
