    The Effective Use of Technology in Schools course will focus on the evaluation of technology in the classroom and how it can connect to the Danielson model. It is designed to provide administrators with the ability to walk into a classroom and understand how technology is being integrated into the content rather than being a stand alone application. The course will also address effective tools that administrators can use in their daily routine to model effective technology use to help coach their staff and provide information to stakeholders in the community.

    This course will be given Administrator Academy credit in partnership with the IPA.

    Illinois educators can also earn 4 PDHs for attending this event.

    Let us help you crack the code on that four letter word: CODE! Coding can seem scary to the everyday teacher. It’s a bit unknown and broad, but it doesn’t have to be something we avoid all together. Think about the newest tech that came out when you were a kid. What was your reaction to it? Did you have to have it? Now, muster up that same feeling of awe and wonder towards coding and robotics (for some of you this isn’t a problem at all!). Join us as we prepare for December's hour of code experiences in this novice level session.

    Illinois educators can earn 1.5 PDHs for attending this event.
