Course Description

This workshop will be structured around platform development and curating and designing digital activities. There will be an opening overview on the tenets and best practices of blended learning. Then participants will be able to work on their chosen areas of need with the optional supervision/consultation of Kent ISD's Ed Tech team as well as the equipment available in our facilities (e.g. recording software and space). This will be a great way to prepare for the coming school year while learning some useful ideas and skills.

Choose the morning or afternoon session, whichever works best for you.
