Upcoming Professional Development Workshops
Regional Office of Education #1 offers professional development workshops for K-12 teachers and administrators.
Computing skills are the most sought-after and highest-paying in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Yet fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women, and that number is declining.
During this interactive session, we will be featuring our Girls Who Code Clubs, which are completely free afterschool programs for 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models and use computer science to change the world. Through fun and interactive curricula, Club girls not only learn about how to positively impact their community through code, but they also are taught to be brave and resilient — which has enormous impact on how they approach challenges and whether they stick with coding in the years to come.
The workshop will prepare participants to take the Google Educator Level 1 certification exam. Level 1 certification indicates a fundamental understanding of using Google Tools in the classroom and confirms standard technology implementation skills. Educators who pass the certification test will be able to advertise their status with a personalized certificate and badge. Certification lasts 36 months. You will receive a voucher to take the Google Level 1 Exam for free. Participants should bring a Chromebook or laptop to this workshop.
Are you new to G Suite for Education? This workshop will explore the ins-and-outs of the G Suite Apps for Education. From Google Drive to Docs to Gmail and Classroom. We will explore how you can get the most out of your G Suite experience! Please bring a Chromebook with you to get the most out of this training.
