Technology training for teachers completed
With funding from the Heinz Endowments of Pittsburgh, Penn State Greater Allegheny Continuing Education presented technology education classes for area school teachers. This was the second year classes were being offered. “Technology in the Classroom: Best Practices for the Classroom Teacher Series II” was held in early August 2010. The first training session was offered to elementary teachers and the second session was offered to secondary teachers. Both of these sessions were ACT 48 approved programs.
Dr. Donald Sheffield, Founder and President of Techniques Assisting Motivation and Excellence (TAME), Inc., once again coordinated the training curriculum. Topics included, “Enhancing Classroom Learning with Video Applications,” “Using Technology for Classroom Management,” and “Power Point and ‘Clickers’.”
