for the skills identified to create Learner Centered classrooms
Welcome to the BCPS Staff Training Modules!
Training and activities to equip staff with tools that provide all learners:
This website is a living website that evolves as we learn, capture data, and recognize even more about what our staff needs are that we can create virtual compliments to face to face and one-on-one training held continuously across the district. This training was created to introduce concepts to the staff that may evolve teaching and learning in Bedford County Public Schools to help learners compete in an ever changing world.
As lifelong learners, we all continue to learn and to evolve, reflecting a growth mindset that is contagious to our student learners. We know our instructional staff members are aware of the importance of technology in our world today, and we believe that with support and collaboration from all, we can achieve this goal of providing our learners with the ideal learning experience and support our learners in our ever-changing world.
In order to help our student learners meet today's world and beyond, we are attempting to provide our staff learners with in-person and ONLINE training to support their teaching of skill sets that will amplify Virginia's Profile of a Graduate. Please click on the link to see more of how Virginia explains the Profile of a Virginia Graduate.
Coupled with the Curated PL Links, these resources are created by teachers for teachers.
As we embark down the path to creating learning that is personal, we see more themes emerge in what staff outcomes for implementing personalizing learning environments in their classrooms. Below are the most common outcomes present when a classroom is being personalized. Our goal is to support the staff with effective learning around these outcomes.
Reflection pages allow staff to look at the modules, the unpacking, and the resources and then begin to think of ways we may be able to infuse into our lesson plans. Please consider the SAMR model when using technology as well. Choosing the correct integration level may help staff learners better infuse the use of technology.
As we build on these ideas, we will be training staff not on what this looks like but how to reflect and infuse into our lesson plans, so that our learners our empowered for the future. Technology is not the teacher but the tool for staff to open the doors to creativity, connection, collaborative, communicative, and critical thinking.
