Tech4Learning's professional development can complement your existing professional development program to support and extend your implementation of Wixie. We share your goal of achieving successful technology integration to improve student learning in your classrooms.
Our skilled trainers work with you to customize each event to meet your goals and needs, training teachers to use Wixie to connect students to the curriculum and build higher-order thinking skills. In the past, we have focused trainings in areas like:
We can adjust our content to meet the needs of one-day workshops during professional development days or work regularly with classroom teachers to plan, implement, and evaluate standards-based technology lessons through on-site coaching.
We can help you kick off an implementation with a full day of hands-on training for site leaders. If you can't commit to a full-day, we can adjust our training to combine an afterschool kick-off with staff to-teach a Wixie lesson in classrooms the next day, or another combination that meets your goals.
As teachers become more comfortable with Wixie, our trainers can serve as instructional coaches as teachers develop Wixie lessons and performance tasks for their students to complete. They can help teachers connect student learning to standards and differentiate their instruction in Wixie, both as a guide on the side or through classroom modeling directly with students.
As Wixie becomes an essential part of your curriculum instruction, our trainers can help you maximize the teacher tools to take advantage of the assessment, scoring, and standards tracking option in Wixie. We can also work with curriculum leaders to help your site develop a customized library of activities. We will work with teachers to develop Wixie templates for high-level performance tasks tied directly to your curriculum, reading programs, and educational initiatives.
If you are shifting to project-based learning, we can help you utilize Wixie in ways that support this powerful approach to student learning.
