General Description

This Individualized Professional Development Opportunity directly supports our Regional Priorities. Some of the learning targets come directly from Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching Rubric. Specifically, they represent critical attributes in the proficient column of item 1d. Demonstrating Knowledge of Resources.

Educators will earn 5 Professional Development Hours for successfully completing all 5 Challenges.

      2. Apply their knowledge as they create artifacts using G Suite.
      3. Reflect on evidence to show how the application of these tools can impact students.

• create a collaborative environment with colleagues and students that streamlines workflows.

• envision using these tools with students within and outside of the classroom to enhance student learning.
