Summer Technology Learning Opportunities

PPS Education Technology Workshops
For the first time in several years, I will be offering summer technology professional learning opportunities. Workshops will take place Tuesdays through Thursdays, June 23-25, July 14-16 and Aug. 4-6 from 9 am to noon in the BESC Wallowa Lab. See the links below for class descriptions and dates. 

PPS EdTech Summer Camp
Summer camp is about having fun, trying new things and connecting with friends. That’s what PPS EdTech Summer Camp is about too! This camp is an introductory virtual playtime that allows you to explore some great tools you can use in your classroom. Through a series of creative challenges, you will build your own knowledge and skill in using technology to create and share. Join us for a summer learning adventure!  Follow the link above for more information and to register.

PPS IT Expo Cancelled Due to Low Registration
PPS IT will be hosting this special one-day event on Wednesday, July 22 with sessions focused on educational and technical support topics, as well as a hardware showcase and unconference session. Please bring your own device and join us at the BESC to connect with your colleagues around using technology in the classroom and how best to support teachers with that technology. This is a free event and lunch will be provided!

For more information on workshops or the expo, please go to Attendance is voluntary for all events and PDU hours are available. Registration for workshops and the Expo opens on April 28.
