What does it look like to be a DLS at your school/district?
Measuring teacher & student progress in meeting technology standards
Leveraging technology in competency-based education
We know that professional development is important for everyone. In many cases, technology integration teachers are solo in their own buildings or districts. This roundtable opportunity is for those technology integration teachers interested in having conversations about particular topics to improve instruction for staff and students in their own district. Topics/discussion will be tailored based on participant attendees thoughts. Let’s get together to have thoughtful conversations to help move our schools forward.
A light breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee. Attendees are encouraged to bring both their best practices and challenges.
Registration is limited to 20 participants, so register ASAP to ensure a seat! NHSTE Premium & Basic members receive advance notice for all professional learning opportunities.
