More than 125 Ashland School District teachers have been participating in summer staff development activities in July and August to stay current with all the changes in education. Thirty different classes were offered in topics ranging from learning how to use new technology, to developing differentiation strategies for the classroom, as well as implementing the new Common Core State Standards.
To assist teachers in implementing the 21st Century learning skills and integrating the newest technology into their classrooms, several courses were available. An overview on Google Apps for Education class was offered, as well as a variety of more in-depth classes on Google Docs, Gadgets, Picasa, Forms, Sites, Mail, and Calendar. To further enhance student learning, the school district also provided training in the implementation and use of the district’s new Chromebooks and iPads. Additionally, classes were available in continued training for SMARTBoards covering interactive lessons and assessments.
