Summer PD--the Tech-infused Teacher

3 weeks, 9 Activities, lots of hands-on help--and more


Tech-infused Teacher 2016 is a three week (June 19-July 9), eighteen-hour interactive course on the most popular tech ed topics. These are the ones you’ve heard about, seen—want to use in your class if only you knew how to do that. It blends technology with teaching to build a collaborative, differentiated, and shared learning environment. In this three-week course (formerly known as Summer PD), you use a suite of digital tools to leverage change while addressing overarching concepts like digital citizenship, internet search and research, authentic assessment, digital publishing, and immersive keyboarding. You actively collaborate with classmates, sharing knowledge and providing constructive feedback, while you learn to publish digitally and solve common class tech problems. Classmates will become the core of your ongoing Professional Learning Network.

Assessment is project-based so be prepared to be fully-involved and an eager risk-taker.
