Workshops and Staff Development

There are numerous opportunities to attend workshops and staff development in the Saugus Union School District Listed below are a few possibilities.


Incentive workshops

     These workshops are held after school at various sites and cover a multitude of subjects.  During the school year I offer Incentive workshops on Edusoft, Zimbra, Open Office, podcasting, and blogging.  If you are interested and maybe even have a group of teachers interested, I can do a mini workshop during a staff meeting.  Check the Calendar 2007-08 to see what is planned for technology integration workshops.


Staff Development Days

     In the past, as requested, I have designed conference type workshop sessions for multiple schools with a variety of trainers on a variety of technology topics.  This can be designed for one school, or many.  We have some of the best trainers here in Saugus and they are more than welcome to share their expertise. Everything from Wikis, to websites, to podcasting, to Powerpoint, and iMovie can be made available.  Talk with your administrator to see if this is something your site may be interested in.



CTAP Technology Proficiency Academies

Saugus is fortunate to have the availability to offer Level 1 and Level 2 Proficiency Academies taught by local Saugus CTAP certified trainers .  The Academies are 5 days, not all at once and chock full of training to help teachers integrate technology in the classroom.  The focus for Level 1 is personal proficiency.  Level 2 is integration and multimedia.


There will be two level 2 training workshops offered this school year in Saugus.  Watch for more details about these trainings. You can find out more of what is offered in these academies by visiting the CTAP site at:
