I hope you’ll join me for some fun-filled afternoons of digital explorations beginning September 9 and continuing Wednesdays throughout the first semester!
Wired Wednesdays will be held from 4 PM- 5 PM and will rotate among elementary library locations. Sessions will be listed here along with the link to register in My Learning Plan. Participants will be granted 1 hour of Act 48 credit for their active participation in the session. Plan to come as a team or attend individually… this time is meant for you to get hands-on, explore, and make connections between the digital tools that are available to us and how best to support instruction and student learning.
There will be resources shared in advance of each session so you can set up accounts and/or take care of any pre-session to-dos so the entire hour can be spent learning and collaborating!
Please email Adam with suggestions for Wired Wednesday topics! As always, Adam is available to support your team during common planning time and to push in to classrooms. Please do not hesitate to schedule to work with Adam at any time!
