Our Approach

First, we listen.

CES consultant/trainers can help you to assess needs in your school or district, and will tailor a program of training, coaching and consultation to meet those needs. We’ll work with you to design training and consultation that fits into your available time and takes place at your location; addresses your audiences (teachers, leadership, paraprofessionals); and presents the content that you want. 

Experience

CES specialists have helped school districts and organizations across Massachusetts and beyond. The project with Worcester Public Schools, for instance, was a multi-year project that implemented a Technology Plan across all of the schools in Worcester, and CES continues to work with the district. A number of cohorts, first with teachers and then administrators, developed Technology specialists and champions throughout the district, creating a foundation of understanding of ISTE standards and then building on them. Meanwhile, students were equipped with digital technology to support anywhere learning, and the district was ready when widespread remote learning was needed.
