Many of you have tiptoed into the new school year, testing the waters of teaching knowing that things may change as quickly as last spring. You’re building up your confidence with teaching using different tech applications and tools, either because you are facilitating learning using a blended model or are fully engaged in remote learning. You are doing this while getting to know your students, planning and presenting curriculum, and making sure your materials are organized. In the back of your mind, you may be wondering (as most teachers do) — Am I doing all that I can for my students? Are the tools that I have available being used to the extent that they should?
Boxlight-EOS understands the how’s and why’s of using teaching and learning technology so that it works for everyone in the classroom. The EOS Educator Essentials Professional Development Package helps teachers make the most of their technology to deliver meaningful live lessons no matter the student’s location — in-class, remote, or hybrid.
This special Educator Essentials PD is designed to train, and support, teachers as they build ed tech confidence. What is included in this 4-hour training package?
1 hour of Virtual consultation
We want to understand your school’s unique needs. In this hour we will discuss:
- Technology that your school has access to
- Your teachers’ levels of comfort in using technology
- Your school’s training needs
3 hours of Live Virtual Training
We will help your teachers and support staff become familiar with your Boxlight Interactive Flat Panel. This includes:
- Best Practices for remote and hybrid learning
- Essential interactive panel functions
- Android Toolbar, Infinite Note, saving files, cloud storage, navigation
We will delve into using the Unplug’d application to mirror and share what is presented on your classroom panel to student devices. With Unplug’d, the instruction is basically in the palm of each student’s hands! We will also help you configure technology to use your preferred video conferencing application (Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams) with an external camera, or webcam, to deliver live lessons.
In the last hour of the PD, teachers will work with a trainer to develop and practice delivering live synchronous lessons. Learn how to make the most of ‘real-time’ instruction as you develop best practices when using the panel to deliver your lessons. Benefit from their guidance as you put into practice what you’ve learned. Build confidence with support from education specialists who can answer questions, guide you at your pace, and cheer on your successes!
