Certified Products

Digital Promise currently reviews applications for products to earn two certifications: Research-Based Design and Learner Variability.

In a time when many companies are creating products to solve a number of issues in schools, we know that not all products are made the same. By obtaining a Research-Based Design product certification from Digital Promise, companies can provide evidence to school leaders of their product’s merit.
