Tech Integration/Educational Technologist PLC

This professional learning community is for educators & leaders who are responsible for:

  • identifying & growing educator technology skills
  • developing differentiated learning opportunities
  • inspiring paths to innovative pedagogy
  • planning for strategic & continued growth

This monthly PLC will provide the space and time for participants to explore issues related to technology in schools and create a deeper understanding of how technology promotes our human connection to one another.

We connect via Google Meet and have a Google Group that you may join without attending meetings. 

2020-2021 School Year

Due to concerns about COVID-19 exposure and the on-going pandemic health crisis, Tech Integration/Educational Technologist PLC meetings will be held remotely using Zoom. Normally, in-person meetings are held at the main CES Offices at 97 Hawley Street in Northampton. We value the in-person experience and will balance this preference with safety concerns. When the public health situation changes, we will work as a group to develop a plan for returning to in-person sessions.

Credit

PDPs can be earned by registering for the school year and completing a demonstration of learning, which will be provided upon request by the facilitator. 

PLC Cancellations

Cancellations will be communicated by the facilitator by email before noon on the day of the meeting. Please check your email before the meeting to confirm that there has not been a cancellation.

Registration

Please register online, and the link for the PLC sessions will be shared by a facilitator. 

All questions about this learning community should be directed to the PLC Facilitators, Maureen Beeltje maureen.beeltje@frsu38.org and Casey Daigle cdaigle@collaborative.org.
