As the district continues its transition to G-Suite for Education, the Division of Information and Technology is ensuring ample professional learning opportunities for staff, including face-to-face, small group, larger settings, and online resources. More than 150 teachers participated in G Suite related professional development workshops during the October 17, 2018 half conference day. Workshops included differentiated Google Classroom sessions, strategic use of Google forms for formative assessments, integrating the tools with district Promethean Boards, and more.
These activities, including ongoing elbow-to-elbow professional development in each school, are a continuation of last year’s established baseline of essential skills. These skills are listed here, with corresponding links and information that many users will find useful.
