Professional DevelopmentWorkshops

FOR EDUCATORS

    Unsure of where to begin when you receive your new Clear Touch® panels? We’ve got you covered.

    Our Professional Development workshops are designed to let teachers connect this cutting-edge technology to their daily classroom practices—and have some fun in the process.

    The Clear Touch® Professional Development (PD) team is composed of former educators with a combined 50+ years of experience. We understand the educational benefits of new technology, as well as the practical frustrations that may come with the task of using it for the first time. Designed with Android technology and optional built-in PC capabilities, our walk-up ready panels feel familiar from the start, which helps shorten the traditional learning curve. During each session, attendees engage in hands-on activities and participate in cooperative learning groups where they can share ideas for classroom application and best practices.

    When you purchase your Clear Touch® panels, booking a one-day, on-site PD workshop is an excellent way to help your team learn to use the technology effectively. In addition to these in-person workshops, we provide access to online training courses through Clear Touch® Academy, an excellent resource for teachers who may need further assistance.

      Our workshops include the following:

      Objectives
