Tailored PD Programs

Mini-Merit
Based on the KCI’s expertise in providing high quality professional development programs, schools and districts are increasingly engaging the KCI to provide PD programs that are tailored to a school or district’s specific needs. The goal of these programs is to prepare teachers to implement 21st century technology skills into daily instructional practice through an intensive process of learning how to implement a variety of hardware and software tools, including free web 2.0 applications. These engagements take many forms and vary in length, depending on the needs and goals of the schools and districts.
