     The RRR Digital Cohort Project kicked off at the start of the 2016-17 school year. In our efforts to help teachers build a technology tool box that will support RRR lessons the Technology Integrators visited all 19 schools each month to provide a 1 hour presentation on technology tools and resources available to teachers and students at Central Dauphin School District.

     

    During 2016-17 the Digital Cohort Project  included:

    • Monthly 1 hour meetings at each school providing technology resource information

    • Saturday technology training (3 hours / once a month) to provide hands-on training on specific technology tools such as Google Apps for Education, Canvas and Discovery Education to mention a few.

    • Full day training offered during the school year on technology tools that will support and change the classroom infusing collaboration, creativity, authenticity and student engagement.

    • Selection of 20-25 teachers to get approximately 6 full days of training from a nationally known educational speaker. In addition to the training the teachers were provided approximately 10 Chromebooks and  in-class support as they integrated the new technology resources (and devices) into their classroom instruction.

     

    In 2017-18 and 2018-19 the Digital Cohort project continued to grow. A 2nd Digital Cohort was selected in 2017-18, Chromebooks provided and another year of great instructional strategy training using technology in the classroom. Ongoing training and support is provided to the staff by the Technology Integrators and Technology Facilitators.

     

    This year (2018-19) once again teachers will be applying to become a member of the 3rd Digital Cohort. We are looking forward to an exciting year of new ways to engage the students using strong instructional strategies and technology tools.
