HHS New Tech PD Offerings

HHS TASTE of TECH PD MENU

Attached you will find a weekly schedule of Technology PD opportunities you can participate in throughout the week and/or month.  A hardcopy will also be provided in your mailbox. I understand that your planning TIME is very VALUABLE and have gone back and forth for the last few months about how I can make PD more flexible for you this year.

Short PD Sessions

We will continue to offer technology in a variety of formats. However, 15-20 minute “Appetizers” will now be provided on select Fridays throughout the month. This is a great option for those of you who are stretched for time.

Personalized Sessions

I would love for you to consider scheduling 1:1 Personalized Tech sessions with me. These sessions will target your specific classroom activity, special project, and overall curriculum standards that can be enhanced with technology.  Personalized PD is not limited by the “traditional” formats that may not work with your schedule this year. You can even “Lunch and Learn” and eat while we meet.  To schedule a session with me, please click on the link below my signature or go to www.hhstechnology.wordpress.com and click on the ITRT page.

Student Lessons

It would be exciting to collaborate with each of you to enhance your well-developed student lessons with a sprinkle of technology.  Please don’t hesitate to take advantage of having me come into your classrooms to help you guide students in all sorts of new tools for writing, review, formative assessment, discussion, special projects, etc.  On days designated for student lessons, you could also schedule a time for small groups of students to come and meet with me as they work on special projects in the classroom.

Content Meetings

Department and/or PLC meetings are a great time to get a brief introduction or overview of technology tools that can be aligned to your content.

Teacher Experts

There are hundreds of thousands of cool tech resources and techniques that are waiting to be discovered everyday! I don’t pretend to know everything, so if YOU have something you would like to share with the staff, please let me know. This includes tips and tricks for the new gradebook, activeinspire, or anything else we currently use.  You can earn tech credit for collaborating with me on short tutorials as well.

Note: Mondays will generally be designated for Tech Planning and getting the “laptop” initiative up and running.  As always, the weekly schedule attached may be subject to change (testing, meetings, emergencies, etc.), but I hope that it will provide better clarity on what is available throughout the school year.

Join.Me-Free Screensharing App for Struggling Students

join.me

JOIN.ME- This app will allow you, as the teacher, to easily share your screen/promethean board lesson  with other students in class. They will be able to mirror that screen onto their devices.

In hopes of providing our visually impaired student, and any other student with the access they need to be successful in the classroom, I have created a short online tutorial for using Join.Me (the screensharing app).  Throughout the tutorial, I share the basic features on how to sign-up and navigate the site. It is very simple to use. : )

Provided below is a link to the video tutorial of how to get started with the website. Join.Me Tutorial

For those of you who still wish to meet with me or who need help on setting it up in their classroom. Please don’t hesitate to schedule a time for us to meet by clicking on the Tech Request Form below my email signature.
