Educational Technology Workshop

On Friday, January 27th our faculty participated in an educational technology workshop.  The exciting part is that we did not have to visit another school or have an expert guest speaker flown in.  Teachers participated in 21 different learning sessions led by their colleagues.  It was an opportunity for our staff to showcase the educational tools being implemented in their classrooms and to model how these technologies enhance instruction. Teachers were asked to research each of the sessions in advance and select sessions that best applied to their specific teaching assignments.   The benefit to a professional development activity of this nature is that our teachers now have access to a local network of experts.  I am confident that all teachers learned applications that will strengthen their instruction.

Sessions included:
