Professional Development Day Gets Digital

While students enjoyed one more day of winter break, Cushing’s faculty members were busy in the classroom. During a day dedicated to professional development, teachers, staff, and administrators took part in their choice of sessions that found them learning SMARTBoard tips and digital research tools, setting up Twitter feeds, downloading iPhone apps, filming and editing with Flip Video, exploring open-source recording software, and discussing strategies for teaching differentiated learning. Taught by fellow faculty members, the sessions were a great way to collaborate with one another on combining the best traditional teaching methods with technology in our rapidly changing world.
