Even though you may be in the midst of a flurry of activities with your school/district right now, it’s not too late to start planning how you can make the most of your summer and invest in some meaningful time to recharge. At TCEA, we happen to have three well-crafted academies, all of which are located at the TCEA Conference Center in Austin, Texas, that will help you sharpen your saw and ensure a smooth school year.
- Adobe Academy (June 21-22, 2016) The Adobe Summer Academy will be led by your colleagues: exceptional educators who understand the software programs and their usefulness in today’s classroom. Whether you are just getting started using Adobe applications, polishing your techniques, or taking your curriculum to the next level, there will be something for every educator at this hands-on event.
- Computer Science Academy (July 21-22, 2016) New and veteran Computer Science teachers will experience professional learning opportunities that will result in more students being able to take Computer Science courses in high school. Explore available textbooks, syllabi, units of study to cover, classroom management, logistics and grading, what programming language to start with, and how to stay ahead of the students.
- Chromebook Academy (July 28-29, 2016) Unlock innovative ways to use Chromebooks in the classroom through hands-on learning opportunities. Discover how this cost-effective alternative for the classroom, campus, or district can greatly improve student learning and performance. Presentations range from the overview and comparison to other mobile learning devices to guidance on deployment and management success.
Lunch is included with all of these academies, as well as structured networking time so that you can learn from your colleagues. There will even be fantastic door prizes. Start planning for a great summer and connect with other educators by registering for one of these learning opportunities. Which one will you choose?
