Interview with our Director of Curriculum

"In brief, in order to prepare students for the opportunities and challenges in the 21st century, Midland Park is excited to provide teachers and students access to technology to support this growth and development. To accomplish this goal, the district will be providing more workshops for teachers to support technology integration in the classroom and highlight best practice using 21st century tools. The needs of each building are unique; therefore, workshops will be geared toward the specific learning needs of teachers and the grade level(s)/subject areas for students." - Melissa Quackenbush

Why Flipped PD Would Work...

Flipped PD would work in my district because it would force technology to be infused into our PD sessions. To truly flip PD teachers need access to technology and with that technology comes training and more opportunity to use the technology during PD, class, meetings, etc. This is a win-win situation for my district...teachers receive better technology and better PD!!!
