education for educators
Education technology works best when educators understand and feel comfortable blending it into their curricula and classrooms.
What’s the benefit of technology for students if teachers don’t know how to use it?
Integrating technology with the learning environment possess challenges such as familiarization, product knowledge, utilization, comfort level, and application. To overcome those obstacles and be effective, teachers need to know how to best use technology to achieve the desired outcomes.
We understand there are different ways to teach and different ways to learn. That’s why we offer multiple options for training that include:
On-site and Virtual Professional Development
1:1 Coaching Sessions
The next obstacle we conquer is time. Since time is a very valued commodity for teachers, we deliver training on a schedule that adapts to the availability of your faculty.
In addition to our two partners, Educational Collaborators and Promethean, we have our own full-time educators that provide professional development. The division is run by our chief academic officer, who has over 20 years in education. On the team, we have our EdTech Instructional Consultant who is also a Level 2 Google Certified Educator to provide virtual coaching and mentoring for faculty, as well as training for a wealth of STEAM offerings.

Elementary STEAM Lab
Technology is the great enabler for STEAM learning. It triggers the imagination, enables students to visualize and conceptualize difficult subjects in new ways, and occasionally, sparks their imaginations about the future.
A Fab Lab or Makerspace is a place for innovation, invention, collaboration and learning using a variety of technical tools and materials through digital fabrication. Students learn to be creative and turn an idea into a reality and use in the real world.
Academic Esports Lab
When adopted properly, esports programs in middle schools and high schools can be so much more than a fun activity. An effective program can heighten enrollment in Career and Technical Education (CTE) areas of study
Additional professional development through STS
Educational Collaborators is a national consulting organization of many of the best practitioners in the field of education. Unlike most consultants, many of our collaborators work in schools today and see their ideas through to their fullest extent.

Promethean Interactive Technology
The Promethean Professional Services team will develop a customized consultation and professional development plan for your educators.
