January Technology PD's

@ Central Magnet School

In an effort to prepare for all the testing and altered schedules in the 2nd semester, my January PD's are going to focus on tools for flipping/blending the classroom. These tools will allow you to deliver instructional content and even assess outside of the classroom.
