Online Summer PD

Google Educator Certification Cohort Level 1 - Begins on June 10, 2019

This online cohort will guide you through the Fundamentals Training to become a Google Certified Educator - Level 1. Through training units, which are available online through the Google Training Center, you will learn how to integrate Google into your classroom. The goal of the cohort is to help you keep on track and provide any assistance needed to complete the units and pass the certification exam.

Registration for the Google Cohort (also register in My Learning Plan to earn 12 CPDU's for completion)

All work will be completed online through Google Classroom.

Apple Teacher

Apple Teacher is a free professional learning program designed to support and celebrate educators using Apple products for teaching and learning. As an educator you can build skills on iPad and Mac that directly apply to activities with your students, earn recognition for the new things you learn, and be rewarded for the great work you do every day.

Join the Apple Teacher Program here and earn your Apple Teacher badge over the summer! You will need an Apple ID to sign into the Apple Learning Center. You can also create a new Apple ID if you prefer.

Summer Symposium

The ETHS EdTech team will be hosting their first Technology Summer Symposium on August 8, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM.

This unique PD experience will provide participants with a full day of intense training along with small group collaboration and preparation. Hear from innovative teachers who are using technology to make lessons more meaningful, efficient, and transformative.
