Summer 2020 PD by the Pool...or Couch
The Educational Technology team has been busy researching, designing, and developing the best possible professional development experience we can provide during the summer of 2020. Due to current state and local restrictions and guidelines, we have planned MANY virtual PD opportunities throughout the summer, beginning June 1st. If the state lifts in-person meeting restrictions and we see a demand for this, we will update with face-to-face training opportunities as they are scheduled. In the meantime, the EdTech team will conduct all official MPS PD sessions via a virtual webinar (Zoom or Microsoft Teams Meetings).
*You do NOT need to sign up. Simply find the session you want to attend and click on the virtual meeting link when it's time to join. You will receive official MPS PD points for the session, but you'll have to stick around until the end of the session to receive a PD evaluation link.
For our NEW TEACHERS, there will be a New Teacher Canvas course (coming soon!) just for you. Until then please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
EdTech will be holding virtal office hours over the summer!! Wednesday 9-12, Thursday 1-4, After June19th - Wednesday 9-12. Click on the link in the calendar below; we are here to help in any way we can.
As the District implements Canvas Learning Management System with our PreK-6th grade sites, we have developed a NEW Elementary Canvas Training course that will house the info you see on this page and much more! We'll go over how to sign in and enroll in this course during Session 1 of our Canvas Academy, so please look in our EdTech PD Calendar below to sign up for a time that works for you.
Our junior high and high school sites have been implementing Canvas for over a year now, and it proved essential during our distance learning period. If you are a current MPS secondary teacher and have not signed up for our Secondary Canvas Training Course, please click the link above and sign into the "Student/Teacher" Canvas login with your district email and password and enroll in this course for everything you need.
*If you need some refreshers and want a live training, be sure to checkout our EdTech PD Calendar below for Canvas Academy sessions (1-4).
