In this episode, I share some of my favorite strategies for using technology in meetings and professional development sessions. You’ll also hear about how modeling tools in these sessions can spark discussions and build confidence in using technology in the classroom.
In this episode I share a few tips for how to bring in digital tools to your next meeting, whether you are leading a faculty meeting, professional development session, or hosting a group of families for a curriculum night. I’ll also share some tools you can try out and reasons why bringing in digital tools into this format might be worth exploring this school year.
Using technology in meetings this school year can accomplish a variety of goals. You can incorporate technology in your next meeting to deliver resources, model classroom implementation, spark discussion, get real-time feedback, and build confidence and buy-in in your school.
