Professional Development

---"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn." -- John Cotton Dana

Professional development is critically important to the successful integration of any technology program. Based on needs assessment results, workshops are offered throughout the year as part of the Parkland Professional Development Academy to teachers and administrators. The Parkland Academy Workshops provide several high-quality workshops on such topics as:

  • Formative Assessment: The Key to Personalized Learning
  • Using Google Chromebooks in the Classroom (grades 2-12)
  • Using iPads in the Classroom (grades K-1)
  • Empowering Students through Authentic Projects
  • Ramping Up Your Presentation Toolbox
