Instructional Technology PD Catalog
Research supports continuous and focused professional development on one technology tool. For this reason, we encourage schools to create yearlong professional development plans which provide time for teachers to practice and implement technology tools effectively.

- Going Google with Amanda Youngblood
Instructional Technology will be sponsoring an exciting new professional development opportunity for full time, K-12 teachers on October 13 -14, 2016. Go Google with Amanda Youngblood is a series of nine individual sessions focused on specific Google tools, tips, and tricks for classroom teachers. Teachers can sign up for one or all of the sessions during the two day event. Space is limited however, and we ask that participants who register commit to the attend the sessions as planned so that as many teachers as possible can take advantage of this unique opportunity.
