Take E-TIPS Classes

Several departments in MCPS offer E-TIPS classes. You earn E-TIPS hours for attending the class and completing an assignment. All E-TIPS classes focus on how to use technology with students in the classroom.

Sign up for all classes on the PDO (just put "tips" in the course title field to find them)

Do an E-TIPS Project

The following projects allow active users of technology to earn E-TIPS hours by sharing their skills with others or taking on leadership roles as coaches and trainers.

Network with other E-TIPS Educators

One advantage of participating in E-TIPS is that it creates opportunities to network with other educators in the district who are also interested in how technology supports student learning and performance.
