CREATION LAB Technology Training – Spring, 2016


In addition to Google Hangouts, we will be implementing a new form of PD called Creation Labs. You will find the locations and dates listed on the attached form. Creation Labs will allow teachers time after school to CREATE, LEARN, and DO for as long as their schedule permits. This open-house style of PD will be a great time for teachers to enjoy snacks, camaraderie, as well as time to learn and create! 

We will be sending a Google Form to your faculty the week before the Creation Lab scheduled at your school. We will also be posting the Creation Lab Form in the Gadsden City Schools Get Connected Google+ community. Teachers may attend Creation Labs at ANY location they choose.
