Go Ahead, Become A “Certified Educator”

Many of the teachers in our district are “Certified” or “Brand Ambassadors.”  We work with teachers who collect certifications and are brand ambassadors for products that they heavily use and/or just love.  So I was taken aback to see a tweet about #edtech brand ambassadors:
