We get it - coordinating relevant, engaging professional development for your school or district is tough, not to mention costly. And, there is the added headache of coordinating schedules, managing weather interruptions, finding coverage for teachers… the list goes on and on.
That's exactly why we created our Distance Learning Design Workshops here at EdTechTeam. These hour-long, interactive PD sessions are the same engaging and hands-on PD that you get at our face-to-face workshops, just more easily accessible for you and your staff.
With extensive connections to current classroom educators, coupled with our pedagogy-first approach, you are sure to receive current and relevant information.
The Finer Details
Facilitated through a dedicated Google Meet link, our Distance Learning Design Workshops allow one person, a small team or your entire district to join in on the learning. PD has never been easier or more accessible. The best part? You only need a device and an internet connection; pajama pants optional!
Please note that all workshop times are Pacific Daylight Time.
