In today’s world, teachers’ plates are overflowing with responsibilities. With all of the demands that are expected of teachers – which include attending mandated trainings – there seems to be little to no time for teachers to seek out professional development opportunities that are of interest to them.
One topic that has been growing in momentum and interest in the teaching community is educational technology. Even though many schools are adopting new technology and requiring teachers to utilize it with their students, many teachers find that they lack a broader context of understanding in order to effectively incorporate these tech products in their classrooms. This leaves many teachers frustrated as they struggle to figure out how to use these products on their own .
With this in mind, Skoolbo has created a new series of professional development webinars, specifically focused on educational technology. These webinars are presented for free as a service to the educational community. The new webinar series will feature topics on:
- differentiated instruction
- power of personalization
- disruptive technology
- the connected classroom
These short 30-minutes webinars give teachers an overview of the different aspects of ed tech and how to use tech in their classrooms. To find out more about each webinar or to register, go to our Professional Development site. If you can’t join us live, the webinars will be recorded for viewing at a later time.
