Summer PD Roundup

Summer is almost here! It’s a great time to relax, recharge and yes, even level up your technology proficiency. While Tech Tips Tuesday is going on our annual break, we wanted to leave you with some summer professional development opportunities.

Remember, all Northern Buckeye/NWOCA trainings are included with membership at no additional cost. You also have access to our archive of webinars, class materials, and other PD resources. Our training website at training.nwoca.org has all of these and more. If you’re unsure if your district is a member, check out the list on our website. read more

FREE Upcoming PD Opportunities Unlike Any Other

When you think of Professional Development, you probably think of being stuck in a computer lab listening to some trainer drone on and on about some topic that probably doesn’t interest you. (Unless it’s a PD from NWOCA, right?)

We’ve got three FREE upcoming professional development opportunities that are different than anything you’ve experienced before! Whether you want to talk about student makers, and explore the latest tools and technology for making… or you want to learn more about digital literacy and how students can use digital skills in everyday life… or you’re curious about the jobs that are out there for our students… these are for you! read more

Ditch That Summit – Free online professional development through Dec. 31!

I heard about this great professional development activity from Matt Miller, the author of “Ditch that Textbook.” It is a nine-day, FREE virtual event that brings together some of the brightest minds in education to discuss technology, pedagogy and more.

There is a new video released each day, and you can watch them online, on your own time. Plus, each session has downloadable notes, and you can receive PD credit for each session you watched. I’ve been watching the videos and there has been some great stuff. So far, I’ve viewed “Where Technology and Pedagogy Collide” with Tanya Avrith and Holly Clark, authors of The Google-Infused Classroom, “The Science of Happiness for Teachers and Students” with Kim Strobel, a Happiness Coach, and “Brain-Friendly Learning That Works” with Dr. Pooja Agarwal, a Cognitive Scientist, and former K-12 Teacher. All of the sessions so far have been excellent! read more
