Teachers need training, professional development, curriculum ideas, and avenues to brainstorm with peers—all at the right time to make an impact in their classroom. Join this web seminar to learn how schools are using Blackboard Collaborate to set up synchronous PD sessions where teachers can learn and connect throughout the school year, without having to leave the classroom. Hear case studies from Georgia’s Cobb County School District and the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School.
Topics will include:
• How collaborative, in-classroom PD helps reduce travel and substitute costs
• Ways that teachers are using Blackboard Collaborate to acquire new tools and ideas for student success
• How synchronous, collaborative online PD differs from self-paced models
