MISD techHUB is a tool for teachers to easily find technology resources. These resources will assist teachers with integrating technology into classroom curriculum. This site includes sections of technology related how-tos; a list of apps MISD has determined useful; Digital Citizenship; shared, nation-wide teacher-created templates; curriculum resources; and a technology MISD badge system for teachers to "show off" what they know and are using in their classrooms. There are also opportunities for online PD outside of the district for which teachers can receive a certificate and credit.
To help you find things on our techHUB site watch this short tutorial:
