Leveraging Free Technology to Create More Inclusive Classrooms - Part 1 (Augusta Session)

The Maine Department of Education and Microsoft are collaborating to offer educators the opportunity to participate in a program from March 2019 to June 2019. The program will focus on leveraging free technology tools available to Maine educators to create more inclusive classrooms. A Microsoft Learning Consultant will lead these sessions.

Technology can create opportunities for students to have more independence and agency over their learning. Leveraging technology to remove barriers to learning can result in and also lead to improved student achievement. During these sessions, educators will learn to integrate several free technology tools to better serve students. These sessions are free for Maine educators.

BrightBytes Virtual Workshops - Part 1

The intent of this workshop series is to help educators use their school's BrightBytes data as they collaborate with others in their school or district to improve teaching and learning with technology. The shorter sessions are designed to make it easier for folks to attend while also providing the opportunity to take what we discuss and have some conversations with colleagues between sessions. Over the course of these mini-workshops, educators will identify one (1) important data point, build a small data cluster of supporting data points, and develop 3 to 5 initial action steps.

Educators can choose to attend all sessions or just a few. Each will have valuable information! Additionally, recordings of each session will be posted on the MLTI website.

For this session, pick one anchor data point. Reflect on why its important to you. Every data points tells a story. What story do you want your data to tell?
