Thursday, December 5, 2013 Technology Leadership Academy Continues to Provide Area Educators with Learning Opportunities
This school year enrollment in the annual Technology Leadership Academy was so high that EducationPlus was required to split the group into two sections. One section met yesterday and continued their instructional technology professional development and their work on iPads. During the course of the year-long meetings, participants develop a vision of how to use technology to improve student performance and assess strengths and needs of their staff and students in the area of technology.
