Session Description

Learning Specialist Learn how the Elk River Area School District designed several online learning modules for staff professional development using our learning management system.

Rather than reporting to school during a fall workshop day, staff can take advantage of “Virtual PD” and work at their own time, pace and place. We will discuss the writing and monitoring process as well as efforts agreed upon by district and union officials. You will also get a preview of the different modules in Schoology ranging from “How to use Google Drive”, “Formative Assessment”, “Seesaw”, “PLC’s” and more!
