Recorded Professional Development
Blended and Online Lesson Design Training
TCSOS has partnered with CUE to provide Tuolumne County Educators an unbelievable week of digital and hybrid Lesson design! featuring Google Classroom, Nearpod, Eduprotocols, and more! Recordings of the training and all of the session resources are available here.
Engage Learners using Google Tools and Nearpod
Presenter: Jody Green
Let’s learn about creating interactive lessons that will engage your students using Google Slides, Google Forms, Google Jamboard, and Nearpod. You’ll get some hands-on experience with each tool as we discuss different ways to use them in any classroom environment, both synchronously and asynchronously!
Google Slides: Tips, Templates, & Tutorials
Presenter: Amanda Sandoval
Create interactive HyperSlides via Edit the Master. GOOGLE SLIDES are magical if you know how to un-tap their secret powers. This session will guide participants on how to use Google Slides in the classroom to support students learning while also showcasing tips & tricks to level up their Google Slides game. Participants in the session will walk away with a Slides challenge to practice their new skills.
Building Relationships Virtually
Get to know your students through meaningful interactions. SmartStarts are EduProtocols with the purpose of setting up success from Day 1. Frayer a Friend, Things that Rock, Thin Slides. Set up routines that build trust and confidence
EduProtocols for the Secondary Classroom
EduProtocols are classroom-tested customizable lesson-frames for any subject or grade to break up clichéd lesson plans, build culture, and deliver content to students in a supportive, creative environment. Templates include Cyber Sandwich, Sketch and Tell, Numbers Mania, 8 Parts, and more.
Best Practices in Distance Learning with Google Classroom
Google Classroom is a great tool for classroom collaboration, but using it during remote learning requires different skills and strategies to execute. Come learn how to help your staff adjust to remote learning with Weekly Topic Strategies, video instructions, streamlining classroom communication, and more.
Now, more than ever, the range of students’ skills is going to be vast and deep. How can we design lessons with strengths in mind? Create access, engagement, and expression options for students to “show what they know.” Participants will be provided with time to “UDL” a lesson idea.
Now We’re Talking!
BE BOLD: Blended Online Lesson Design
Fostering Collaboration Remotely
Cultivating Creative Communication
One of the constant struggles of a distance learning or hybrid environment is making sure all our education community stakeholders have all the information needed to be confident in the learning taking place. Emails alone will not be enough to curb confusion. Join us as we see how district/site administrators, Technology departments, and as classroom teachers can create confidence with creative communications.
Evolving Learner: Creating A New Vision For Teaching And Learning
Presenter: Lainie Rowell
Amidst challenging and uncertain times, educators have the opportunity to rethink school structures and evolve! Learning from kids, peers, and the world, we can focus on redefining roles, building community, nurturing the whole child, and propelling students to become the true catalysts of their own learning.
Summer 2020 CUE Google Training
TCSOS has partnered with CCEE and CUE to provide seven workshops on engaging your students through distance learning. The recordings for the professional development sessions are available here.
