Educators Benefit from School Improvement Network and Atomic Learning Collaboration
Districts across the U.S. are utilizing numerous resources to provide teachers with a well-rounded professional development program. While the use of multiple resources allows districts to provide comprehensive training, it creates a challenge for end users in accessing resources from various websites and managing multiple log-ins.
To begin addressing this challenge, Atomic Learning and School Improvement Network announce a collaboration to provide shared resources to guide educators on a path to technology-empowered learning.
With the release of Atomic Learning’s new Effective Online Teaching and Learning spotlight program and PD 360’s Technology Pedagogy training, the companies have come together to build a free educator forum on the topic where all educators can explore the topic of online teaching and learning. This forum, which is freely available to all educators at http://www.pd360.com/index.cfm?joinGroup=16249 includes free resources and discussions such as:
- Seven Steps to Flatten Your Classroom eBook
- Moving Education Forward with Technology Integration eBook
- Online training on how to set up and record a lecture
- Article review and discussion on lessons from past winners of the K–12 Online Teacher of the Year award
All educators are invited to join the discussion group to help identify emerging practices for delivering effective online instruction, reflect on how they can include those practices in their teaching, and know where to locate technology how-to support materials. Atomic Learning’s new Effective Online Discussions workshop is one of the featured tools in this discussion, along with PD 360 Technology Pedagogy resources such as the new program Tools: How to Use Technology in the Classroom. This discussion forum is open to customers and non-customers.
In addition to the combined discussion topics, customers of both PD 360 and Atomic Learning will be able to access both resources through single sign-on by the end of the year.
