Within this program, we’ll discuss:
• How to set up a space to let teachers try things out (playground)
• Frequency for the playground in your environment (is it daily, weekly, monthly?)
• Creating a flow of technology for the playground (does one session connect to the next?)
• Adding the silly (when teachers are laughing, they’re learning)
The overall goal is to leave with a plan that fits your environment that provides technology tool instruction to teachers, no matter their level or interest.
