Abstract: This research examines certifications of educators by corporations, such as Apple™, Google™ and many others. These organized certifications support communities of educators, who are trained in the use of their products and systems. With the support of a built-in community, do these teachers experience improvement in their teaching? This study explores the impact of these certifications through teachers’ collegial interactions and their use of new innovations.
