Current Tech Training Schedule
Above is the June-July 2023 Technology Training schedule. Classes will be a mix of in-person and online classes and are available to all staff of Washington County Schools. These will count toward your 2023-2024 CEUs.
ONLINE CLASS TIPS
Don't come just to watch. Plan to participate in the guided lessons in which we are usually producing something or an outcome that is useful. If you have the ability to do so, I recommend you use two devices: one to connect to our Google Meet class and the other, not in Google Meet, to work on and follow along. With this setup you can see my screen and yours at the same time. Devices that can connect to Google Meet are: phones, PCs, laptops, Chromebooks, Viewsonic Boards, Cleartouch Boards, iPads, & Macs. If you don't have two devices, you can use two browser tabs: one for the Google Meet class and another to work on and follow along.
ABOUT YOUR TRAINER
The classes are taught by Instructional Technologist, Carol Birkner, who has 24 years' training experience with Washington County. A sign-in sheet will be provided to log your attendance and a certificate emailed to you. If you have further questions or wish to suggest a training topic, email Carol at email@example.com.
The tech training lab is at Boones Creek Elementary room D120.
HOW TO FIND IT: The address is 132 Highland Church Rd, Johnson City. Park in the front. During school hours and until 4:00p the staff can buzz you in the front door. Enter the main hallway on the right side of the lobby. Follow the main hallway down past the Library and D120 will be on the left. After 4:00p park in the back by the gym and call me at 423-434-4937 so I can let you in.
Online classes are in Google Meet.
