School sites and districts can request presentations or hands-on professional development sessions by either selecting topics from our existing curriculum or by requesting custom sessions tailored to the needs and infrastructure of their unique circumstances. The OCDE Educational Technology Department will consult with the site and develop curriculum prior to the event. OCDE professional developers will then travel to the site, bringing any necessary equipment with them. Additional consulting, including evaluation data and a discussion of next steps, will follow. The goal of the program is to build capacity in the sites and districts that participate.
Professional developers who will visit sites are all members of the OCDE Educational Technology Department, or else local specialists. These members consist of certified K-12 teachers and educational leaders that are committed to inspiring innovation in education. All of our curriculum is focused on integrating technologies into instruction, with a particular focus on context-embedded, inquiry-driven, and socially negotiated learning.
In order to fit a wide variety of school schedules, a new flexible pricing schedule makes shorter sessions of 1 or 2 hours possible in addition to our original 3-hour and 6-hour sessions. Discounts are also available if multiple sessions are booked as a series.
