You've reached the fourth and final tutorial in Sophia's free professional development, Tablet Classroom Certificate! You’ll want to finish this lesson and complete the quiz at the right of the page. Once you receive the "green check", you have all the information you need to start preparing a lesson for your class as a demonstration of mastery.

Here are the steps to receive your certification:

  1. Determine what lesson you would like to use as an online tutorial. What is a tutorial exactly?
  2. Create the tutorial you’ll use with your students, colleagues or anyone you think would like to learn what you have to teach. For more information about tutorials and what you can include, check out our playlist, All About Content.
  3. Submit the link on the Flipped Classroom Certificate page in Section 3,  Demonstrate Mastery. This will send your work to the submission team at Sophia Learning where they can review and approve your work.
  4. Wait for a return email (it won't be long now) asking for your contact information so we can send you verification.
  5. Don’t forget to check out our full Teacher Help Page and see all the amazing things you can do to engage your class.


We sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed this free program. Feel free to leave comments or questions in our Teacher Forum. Lastly, don't forget to share the fun with your friends and colleagues - the more the merrier!


Now get busy and let the creating begin!
