Professional Development for Teachers
BASCOM provides true Professional Development for teachers and administrators — far exceeding traditional product training. Our Professional Development combines the principles of adult learning theory with the practical experience of veteran staff developers to present engaging workshops that help teachers immediately integrate the Internet into classroom instruction. Workshops are led by certified teachers that have both classroom experience and a background in instructional technology and teacher professional development.
Our Professional Development for Teachers Takes a Four Activity Approach
Following a standard four activity approach, participants in our Professional Development for teacher training:
- Engage in professional reflection and dialogue
- Acquire new skills and apply them in the classroom
- Develop electronic materials immediately ready for classroom use
- Integrate pedagogical techniques with Internet resources
Through BASCOM Professional Development, teachers learn to deliver dynamic, Internet-rich lessons in as few as three hours while growing into the more advanced features through future workshops. The flexibility of our solutions, complemented by the modular design of the Professional Development offerings, make your implementation as unique as your school or district.
