Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District kicked off this year’s series of Transformation Thursdays, professional development sessions dedicated to transforming classroom instruction, on October 2.
Offered every first and second Thursday of the month, the sessions allow teachers, administrators and staff members at HCISD to participate in informative courses on different topics related to technology.
Transformation Thursdays focus on layers of learning, allowing teachers to incorporate technology into their lessons. Topics will include website creation, Edmodo, Educational Networking, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) resources, and many more.
The topic for this Thursday’s meeting was Edmodo and Digital Citizenship strategies, in which teachers collaborated and shared ideas on how to promote safe learning online.
Transformation Thursdays for the 2014-2015 school year will take place at the HCISD Administration Building, located at 407 N. 77 Sunshine Strip. Hosted by the Organization Development Department, sessions begin at 4:15 P.M. and require registration on Eduphoria.
