 Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 10.33.50 AMNow open to all districts!

The Technology Readiness Infrastructure Grant (TRIG) is excited to offer no-cost Dell® Professional Development. On June 10, 11 & 20, Berrien Springs Public Schools will be hosting three separate one-day TRIG sponsored Dell Professional Development sessions on the following topics:

June 10, 2014 – Project Based Learning for a New Global Citizen

How do we prepare students with 21st Century skills while still meeting standards? PBL helps develop a more enlightened student who can successfully navigate any social or work situation that they encounter. It empowers students with their voice and helps them develop a deep understanding of essential standards and skills. This workshop will provide a framework and guide for developing effective PBL experiences. Participants will design a PBL unit by the end of the workshop.

June 11, 2014 – Using STEAM or STEM in Any Classroom

What could STEAM or STEM look like in a regular classroom learning experience? STEAM/STEM are critical experiences that students need. A challenge is that many teachers need clarity on how to apply this in their classroom, other than specialized classes like robotics. The workshop/course will provide structure and strategies for offering STEAM/STEM experiences in any classroom.

June 20, 2014 – Building a 21st Century Citizen

How do we help students navigate the global economy and society with success and confidence? Today’s student needs skills like Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity/Innovation, and Influencing across Networks if they are to succeed in college and career orientated institutions and the work force. This workshop/course will provide strategies and structures for helping students build strong Global Competencies.
