Abstract: This paper introduces proposed research that is designed to examine the impact and effectiveness of certifications by corporations, such as Apple™ and Google™. A common attribute built into all these organized certifications of educators is the community of teachers trained and certified by the corporation. With the support of a built in community, do these teachers experience improvement of the teaching? This study explores the impact of these certifications through the lens of the teachers’ collegial interactions and use of these companies’ innovative products and services.
