IPartner Program

IPartner Program

The INFOhio Integration Partner Program, or INFOhio IPartner Program, is for staff in Ohio education agencies—ESCs, ITCs, Ed Techs, universities, public or academic libraries, and more—who are interested in learning and sharing about INFOhio’s digital content and web tools and how to integrate them into PreK-12 instruction.

The purpose of the IPartner program is to:

  • Support INFOhio in increasing outreach for INFOhio digital content and tools. 
  • Strengthen INFOhio's outreach with partnering agencies to deliver timely updates on INFOhio's digital content and tools.
  • Provide professional development and training opportunities using INFOhio's training curriculum.

Benefits to IPartner:

  • Certification as an authorized INFOhio trainer after completion of required training that can be used to demonstrate professional learning growth.
  • First notification about INFOhio tools and resources updates.
  • Connection to the online learning community of INFOhio trainers to share ideas and training resources.

IPartner Application and Training

The IPartner program is open to new applicants all year. INFOhio will review applications at the beginnng of each month and will notify IPartner applicants at that time of the next steps. Please complete this form to indicate your interest in becoming an IPartner.

Applicants earn IPartner status after completing the IPartner Learning Pathway. This course introduces partners to INFOhio’s digital content and web tools and outlines methods for integrating these resources into the PreK-12 classroom. The IPartner Learning Pathway is a self-paced, online course worth 2 contact hours. Upon completion, the applicant will receive a digital badge to display on websites, email signatures, and social media.
