The FCPS Department of Instructional Technology will be offering this year a variety of technology integration professional development opportunities for teachers after school at various location throughout the county.
We will have 2 topic choices for February: Pixie 3 (for elementary and middle school teachers) and Quizlet (for high school teachers).
Pixie 3 (by Tech 4 Learning) allows students the ability to create their own original art and writing projects on their computer. Easy to use drawing tools make graphic design a snap for students in all grades. Teachers will find the pre-made lessons and activities easy to find and use with students, or can let their class start with a blank canvas where the only limit is a child's imagination.
Quizlet is an online flash cards and study games website with over 9 million free sets of flashcards covering every subject area. Students can play educational games, memorize vocabulary and study online. In this session you will learn how to search for pre-made sets, use pre-made vocabulary sets, create flashcards on Quizlet, edit and adapt pre-made vocabulary sets, and establish groups for those interested at the secondary level.
Participants will have one hour of direct instruction and an additional optional 30 minutes to work independently exploring the tool.
Teachers will be compensated for attending this PD session at the current workshop rate of $26.26 per hour.
NOTE: Even though there are multiple training topics this month, please only choose one session for the month of February. We want to make sure as many people as possible can attend a session each month.
