August 19th Professional Development Day: Integrating Technology into the Classroom
Technology touches almost every aspect of our lives and is quickly changing the way students are learning in the classroom. Today’s students are born into a technology-driven environment that is increasing the demand on schools to integrate more technology into classroom learning. The staff of Bloom-Carroll Local schools participated in a full-day of professional development on August 19th that focused on the potential technology offers for teaching and learning. Trainers from ITSCO, Apple, and INFOhio offered a variety of sessions such as Google Classroom, Smartboards 1 & 2, The Secret Sauce to Blended Learning, Top 5 Web Tools for Formative Assessments, Favorite Digital Bell Ringers, and more. Exploring new ways to effectively use technology in the classroom will help ensure that students are prepared to meet the demands of the 21st century.
