Two popular, annual academies held by Cooperating School Districts of Greater St. Louis are the Technology Leadership Academy and the St. Louis Leadership Academy. A new workshop on June 5th, designed by the CSD Virtual Learning Center and the RPDC, is an extension of these professional development opportunities. School leaders are faced with the task of reforming education to meet 21st Century skill requirements like integrating technology and global awareness. How can we meet the needs of today’s learner, use technology effectively and efficiently, and still maintain the personal connection that’s so important to any learning experience? You’ll learn about managing change, using authentic student engagement strategies, and communicating effectively with education stakeholders. Technology tools used will include, but are not limited to, Google Forms for data gathering and analyzing, learning management systems, social bookmarking, and wikis, blogs, podcasts, videoconferencing and social media.

During this one-day, hands-on workshop, you’ll practice with the tools and develop ideas for incorporating them into your own learning environment. We’ll use National Education Technology Standards for Administrators (NETS*A – The National Educational Technology Standards are the standards for learning, teaching, and leading in the digital age and are widely recognized and adopted worldwide.) as a guide for this class, and you’ll examine your own skills and practices in light of them. This is a bring your own device (BYOD) session – bringing a tablet, iPad or laptop is required.
