Tailored Professional Development
Based on the KCI’s expertise in providing high quality professional development programs, schools and districts are increasingly engaging the KCI to provide training specifically tailored to a school or district’s needs.
The goal of these programs is to prepare teachers to implement 21st century skills into daily instructional practice through an intensive process of learning how to implement new teaching methodologies, which meet current educational standards.
KCI also specializes in training teachers on a variety of hardware and software tools, including free web 2.0 applications that engage students and support student-centered learning. These engagements take many forms and vary in length, depending on the needs and goals of the schools and districts.
