ARE YOUR STUDENTS ENGAGED IN LEARNING WITH THEIR TEACHERS—OR WITH THEIR DEVICES?
Educational Technology Professional Learning (PL) isn’t really about tech at all. Instead, it accesses technology to transform traditional learning environments to accelerate students’ understanding. Through collaborative experiences as well as individualized learning, teachers can identify gaps early and help students learn more effectively.
- How well do your technology resources elevate the instruction and engagement level of your teachers?
- How do you choose the tools that are best suited for your classrooms?
- Are you teaching the digital skills that will help your students leverage and meaningfully use technology in college, careers, and life?
ENGAGING, EFFECTIVE TEACHING STARTS WITH AVID
Effective PL should provide teachers with opportunities to engage in meaningful collaboration. Collaboration is at the core of the PL services offered by AVID. Participants have opportunities to work with one another, ask questions, share ideas, and challenge thinking in every activity. Relationships are carefully developed throughout the training to produce a safe, trusting environment in which teachers experience rigorous hands-on activities that they can take back to the classroom.

STUDENTS FIRST, TECH BRANDS SECOND
While gadget mastery can be rewarding in the moment, how well can your students learn to leverage new (and existing) technologies to enhance their collaborative, critical thinking, and organizational skills? Regardless of the brand of technology (Google, Apple, Microsoft, CISCO, etc.) implemented in your district, AVID focuses on student success first because there is no “one tech fits all” model across classrooms. AVID's digital learning framework provides educators with a pathway toward meaningfully integrating digital tools with instructional practices to differentiate instruction and increase student ownership and independence of their learning.
MATCH OUTCOMES WITH STRATEGY
AVID professional learning provides teachers with instructional strategies that go beyond explicitly teaching a new technology. The focus is on learning goals first and digital tools second. AVID’s Digital Teaching and Learning trainings help tech-savvy educators determine how learning will occur and which digital tools might support and enhance that learning process.
