(ATLANTA, Ga.) Atlanta Public Schools (APS) celebrated 100 educators for completing a unique program that helps to integrate technology into learning strategies.

In August, APS partnered with the non-profit organization, Ed Farm, to increase education equity in both virtual and physical classrooms.

Through the Innovation Fellows Program, educators earned badges for the completion of Learning Experience Designs (LEDs) every month in addition to becoming Apple Certified Teachers, a press release stated.

Many fellows earned Apple Teacher Badges in Swift Coding and various Macbook and iPad badges that allow them to incorporate tools like iMovie, Keynote and Garageband into their teaching practice.

Educators were honored at a Celebration of Learning event Wednesday afternoon at the Coan Middle School building.
