About AP Digital Edge
Pairing AP with Career and Professional Education
AP Digital Edge embeds the practice of related software skills in the curriculum of an AP course. Students will be prepared to pass the AP Exam, as well as the certification exam in the digital tool.
Benefiting Students and Educators
Career and professional education (CAPE) can help students understand challenging AP content through applied learning activities, while AP content can provide context that engages students in learning CAPE skills.
Students who earn qualifying scores on AP Exams can earn credit, advanced placement, or both in thousands of colleges and universities.
Students who pass the test for the software paired with the AP course can earn industry-recognized certifications to add to their résumés and college applications.
The College Board is working with the Florida Department of Education to implement AP Digital Edge. Six Florida districts are participating in the pilot for the fall 2015 semester: Broward, Collier, Lake, Osceola, Palm Beach, and Pinellas.
How to Participate
To take part in the program, teachers must work in one of the pilot districts and must teach an AP course that has received authorization through the AP Course Audit and is one of the AP courses supported by AP Digital Edge.
