Live LearninG: Jeffco Educational University (Ed-U)
Jeffco's Educator Learning department has created a schedule of professional learning opportunities for district educators. These opportunities are offered on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings approximately twice per month. The Ed Tech department hosts a variety of sessions on these dates. You can find the list of dates and links to schedules on their website. The next set of dates is October 27th and 30th!
Asynchronous Learning Options
We know not everyone is able to make it to the live Ed U Sessions, so we have created alternate forms of professional learning: YouTube Playlists and eBooks.
YouTube Playlists: We continue to add to the playlists for the Jeffco-supported digital tools and best practices. Come watch short snippets to get support around the tools and learning that you need! You will find playlists for Follett, Mimio Boards, Zoom, Google, Seesaw, Schoology and more!
eBook Professional Learning Library: Looking for the Ed Tech learning from Ed-U sessions in a different format? Check out our newly created eBooks! We are making a book for each of our professional learning sessions so that you have the opportunity to get and share the learning that you need! You can find these books on our new PL Library site, on sites for related digital tools, and in the Bridge to Curriculum (coming soon!).
