Digital Learning
Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Web 2.0, text messaging, Instagram, video conferencing, music downloading, video games, and online social networking communities-our students live in a digital world, with the ability to contact anyone, anywhere, anytime. How can we catch up with them? We'll introduce you to Google Tools. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and find common ground with your students. Learn how to flip your classroom effectively.

Early Grades Literacy
Learn how to meet the needs of gifted children, children in poverty, and secondary level students. Participate in one-day sessions packed with hands-on activities that reinforce essential literacy skills of K-5 students. Encourage literacy through science, the arts, and social studies.

Beginning Teachers
Strengthen your knowledge base and classroom expertise in your first three years of teaching.

Research and Development
We offer educators an opportunity to meet in a residential setting devoid of distraction to create and advance departmental, school, or district-wide projects. Teachers, administrators, central office personnel, and district coordinators welcome.
