The purpose of the Instructional Technology Leaders group meeting is to network, collaborate, and share best practices around instructional technology topics impacting K-12 classrooms in Wayne County and throughout the state. Participants will gain awareness about what is happening around the state through the different partnerships (REMC, MDE, TRIG, etc.), as well as what is happening locally in Wayne County with Maker Movement, Moodle, Tech Sparks, and other programs. Through this network and support system, we can empower educators with the most up-to-date information about instructional technology trends, policies, programs, and best practices to engage students in the teaching and learning process while increasing student achievement. Dr. Liz Kolb will join us in the afternoon to share research behind technology use in the K-12 environment and to help educators use the Triple E Framework to evaluate technology integration into their instruction.
Research has shown that literacy knowledge and skills developed in the preschool years predict later literacy achievement. To ensure young children are well-prepared to reach the “reading-by-third grade” mandate, it is vital that prekindergarten programs implement the ten research-based, best practices included in the GELN document, Essential Instructional Practices for Early Literacy, PreK. This workshop will provide an introduction to these essential instructional practices and will explore developmentally appropriate strategies for implementation in early childhood programs. The intended audience is: GSRP PreK teachers and associate teachers, early childhood specialists/coaches.
