Does your school’s technology start with a purpose that grows student learning?

The teachers were inspired and ready to begin the year with one PBL unit in place. They thanked me for a workshop with meaning, structure, and support for innovative teaching that was useful for them in the classroom. We all absolutely loved Kris!!! I can't thank you all enough for providing such an amazing presenter! I can't wait to see all this hard work from our teachers translate into the classroom experience. Again, a big shout out for Kris and the TeachThought team. You definitely helped our teachers grow!!!

-Janet Jenkins, Director of General Studies

Thank you for changing the way I teach!

-Jana McCarthy, elementary teacher

Thank you so much for giving us (the teachers) the tools to make real education happen! Finally!

-Amy Guier, middle school english teacher

This is a must-attend workshop. It really changed my perspective on what exactly I should be teaching through my content.

-Philip Ellis, high school science teacher

We were constantly engaged in group activities and discussion/dialogue. Excellent trainer with a lot of knowledge and understanding about PBL, it took me out of my comfort zone!

-Shafaq Imran, teacher

Thank you very much. I have a new "light" on how to get my students to think on their own and at a deeper level.

-Morgan Payton, middle school ELA teacher

The content is excellent and the presenter was highly effective.

-Jim Whitaker, high school social studies teacher

This is effective and worthwhile professional development.

-Emilie Clemmens, math teacher and curriculum coordinator

I enjoyed the workshop. I am able to use what I learned in my classroom!

-Tonya Jones, elementary teacher

Well designed learning presentations and activities...wonderful enriching learning activity.

-Marlene Burek, Manager of Special Education

Fantastic job facilitating a super helpful workshop. I hope to have an opportunity to attend a TeachThought PD again soon!

-Leann Turner, agriculture sciences teacher

Excellent training, built confidence in teachers to further become facilitators of student learning!

-Ron Lockhart, high school math teacher

I found this to be more informative and useful than any other PD I've participated in.

-Deborah Shirley, Elementary Teacher

All feedback from my teacher was positive. She reported that the articles John sent were informative, the conversation was both clarifying and insightful, and the strategies were immediately useful. This is all great news! I have reported back to my administrative team and recommended that we keep Virtual Coaching in mind as we finish up our end of year evaluation conversations.

-Heather Bishop, Language & Literacy Department Chair

Our workshops help you get the most out of your technology integration by putting the learning first.

Putting the Padagogy Wheel to Work

 3 day workshop, 2 day modified version also available.

Participants will be given an opportunity to try out the concepts of the Wheel in their own contexts. Each layer of the Wheel will be unpacked and participants will apply each of the five grids or mindsets to meet their own curriculum design and teaching practice needs. Participants will analyze and apply the five interconnected “gears” of Graduate Attributes and Capabilities, Motivations, Blooms Digital Taxonomy Cognitive Domains, Technology Enhancement and finally using the SAMR model to improve the use of educational technologies. This workshop utilizes flipped learning which requires approximately 3 hours of online work prior to meeting.
