Description: Member technology and learning specialists are working together to create a Modular Blended Professional Development Program (use guest option if asked to login) designed to support excellent curriculum design and instruction utilizing technology. We are inviting you and your school district to be part of this collaborative.

At least 10 professional development and coaching modules will be offered during the school year creating a comprehensive set of options to support your curriculum, instruction and technology initiatives. The typical module features an important research based curriculum and instruction strategy, like formative assessment. Each module also provides technology training designed to both support the featured strategy and to strengthen participants’ overall technology integration capacity. Modules are differentiated to provide specific instruction and coaching for the teacher practitioner, for curriculum and technology leaders and coaches, and for administrators or leadership teams.

The blended delivery system uses a combination of face to face, telecommunication and web based options to provide comprehensive practitioner and leadership development and support. This delivery system supports a variety of participation options and opportunities.
