In order to become a PLATON school you will need to integrate the PLATON methodology in your school. More specifically, you will have to:

 
- Use the Interdisciplinary Map of Science Ideas to create an Interdisciplinary framework in your lessons; 

- Implement a minimum of three Inquiry Components in your practice; 

- Use at least one of our assessment tools;

- Create a portfolio where you present your work to us, so that we can review it and give you the certification. You can make your portfolio using any organization you like.

The PLATON methodology is designed so that all proposed changes are integrated in your every day teaching. This means that in order to implement PLATON you DO NOT need any extra teaching hours. You may need some time however to compile your e-portfolio in case you wish to receive certification. The amount of time is totally up to you, depending on you much you want to put in your portfolio and how comfortable you fill with the use of the tool you will choose.

You will need to get some training in order to familiarize yourself with our methodology. You can do your training online by following the MOOCs designed by our team.

Nope! PLATON is offered to teachers without any cost.

Certification is available for PLATON schools. In order to reach the certification: 

- Use the Interdisciplinary Map of Science Ideas to create an Interdisciplinary framework in your lessons;

- Implement a minimum of three Inquiry Components in your practice; 

- Use at least one of our assessment tools;

- Create a portfolio where you present your work to us, so that we can review it and give you the PLATON teacher certification. You can make your portfolio using any organization you like.

After receiving your certification, you can also send the list of students with whom you worked, so that they receive their PLATON student certification as well. Furthermore, if you work with a minimum of 3 teachers from your school and establish a collaborative framework in the implementation of the PLATON materials, you can also apply to receive a PLATON School certification.
