Train Staff at Your School

etipsDo you have an idea for technology training for staff at your school?  You can design and deliver an in-school training that focuses on how to use technology to improve the performance of students.

Specific Project Tasks

    • PowerPoint presentation with an introduction that includes background information that supports the topic (e.g., research, professional literature review, examples of best practices etc.)
    • Screen shots of procedural steps demonstrating how to use the technology to support students
    • Appropriate handouts such as Quick Guides, tables, reference or other related materials.
  3. Deliver the training at your school and request feedback from the participants at the end of the session.
