At EdTechTeacher, we strongly believe that successful technology integration in schools requires ongoing, sustained professional development.

 


“I really enjoyed the course. I found it to be informative, helpful and it made me eager to use the technology in my classroom.”

FULL YEAR BLENDED PROGRAMS

Our Full Year Professional Development courses are called “T21s” meaning “Teaching with Technology in the 21st Century”. Each T21 is customized for a cohort by the instructor but we offer a range of subjects to start with. 

 

Research studies have shown that teachers need a minimum of 36 hours of professional development before they begin to feel comfortable implementing new technologies and strategies in the classroom. The focus of the T21 year-long blended learning program is to nurture a cohort of teacher leaders that can build a school’s capacity for ongoing experimentation, teaching innovation, and sharing and learning among faculty. The future of learning in our schools will be a blended combination of online and face-to-face teacher training, and the evidence from multiple studies in both higher education and K-12 is that blended learning offers advantages beyond either modality alone. Teaching is an embodied practice, and face-to-face instruction allows for modeling and discussion around classroom management, effective use of classroom space in collaboration, and other parts of classroom teaching. All of the approaches and pedagogies modeled in the face-to-face setting can then be shared throughout the community in department meetings, faculty meetings, and other training by the teacher-leader cohort members. Logistically, schools still have better organizational structures for teachers and substantial amounts of time for full-day onsite training. Working with hundreds of schools, the blended model has proven to be the most engaging for teacher-learners and the most effective in building school capacity for sustainable technology integration.
