Technology Services will provide monthly technology training sessions. One will be focused on district applications supported by our department and the other will be focused on resources and skills teachers can use in the classroom. Training sessions will be held on the first and third Wednesday of each month (with some adjustments) from 3:30pm-4:30pm in the District Office Small Board room. If necessary, the venue will be changed to accommodate larger class sizes or because of scheduling conflicts. All district staff are welcome to attend any training with the permission of their administrator.

Finding time for professional development is difficult. The good news is that there are a lot of great technology professional development resources online. Many of these are short videos for a single topic that can be watched in 5-10 minutes. Consider spending a few of those opportunities using some of these resources to improve your technology knowledge. The Technology Services department has compiled a list of professional development resources for technology.
