Ever wanted to know what teachers in our district are doing with technology? If so, you have to check out our iTunes U Courses which can be viewed from your iPad. All you need to do is download the free iTunes U App and subscribe to any of our courses that you are interested in. For Elementary Teachers we have created a course for each grade level, and content specific courses for Middle School Teachers. We are posting lesson, activities, and projects that Leading Edge Certified Teachers are creating. What is a Leading Edge Certified Teacher you ask?
Teachers will participate in an online course. They will be asked to attend our initial kickoff, and a final wrap-up in person meeting. The course consists of eight modules; however, based on feedback from our first two cohorts, we are spreading it out over eleven weeks to give you time to teach the lessons you will be designing. You can view the curriculum here: http://lecftde.weebly.com/.
We are starting our fourth (and likely last) cohort of the Leading Edge Certification class on January 26th. We are looking for twenty-five teachers interested in learning and integrating technology into their instructional practices. All grade levels and subjects are welcome to participate. You do not have to be an expert in technology to participate, just a strong willingness to learn.
Cupertino Teachers, if you are interested in joining our Winter Cohort please fill out an information form here http://bit.ly/1wjHZMO. This form is used to better understand who you are, and what your classroom is like. We have enough space to hold twenty-five people in this winters cadre. This form will be available until 5pm on Friday, January 16th, and you will be notified on Saturday, January 17th about your participation.
