Education is at its best when teachers and students are engaged and learning together – and technology is a fantastic enabler. Student achievement is at the heart of everything you do - and Compugen wants to give you the tools you need to create an inclusive remote learning environment where all your students have a chance succeed!
Compugen is excited to offer K-12 teachers a choice of virtual training sessions delivered by a Microsoft professional. Let us know which topic is of interest to you, and we’ll set it up with our Microsoft Learning Consultant. Each sessions is about 2 hours long.
The virtual sessions you can choose from include:
1. Spark ideas with Sway
Creativity is no longer an add-on component of instruction. Creativity is a vital skill to prepare students for life in the 21st century. Creative thinking encompasses a wide range of skills that support academic areas. It is integral to how students express themselves, engage in inquiry, and analyze and solve problems. When students engage in authentic learning that is personal and relevant, they can imagine possibilities and creatively generate understanding.
2. Mobile Tools
This session on Mobile tools for Inclusive Classrooms introduces teachers to the Microsoft Translator and Office Lens tool. This virtual training is designed to leverage the capability of these apps to meet the needs of diverse learners while enhancing the teachers’ current efforts.
3. Literacy Tools
Literacy tools such as Immersive Reader and Dictate help build student independence while using a choice-based tool. The Immersive Reader works to enhance reading comprehension, more specifically increase student word recognition and decoding skills by reading text to them. The Dictate tool provides an alternate path to the writing process with voice-typing capabilities (speech to text) which empowers students to communicate more effectively using hands-free typing.
4. All About Microsoft Teams
Teams is an online classroom hub as well as tool for collaboration and instruction designed to allow for student growth. In this space, teachers can organize and share classroom objectives and learning outcomes while increasing student engagement and ownership of their learning goals. Students can also develop digital citizenship, engage their creative capabilities, and think critically about the world. The All about Teams training introduces teachers to the basics of Teams, readying them for collaboration with others and initiating the conversation about instructional use of the platform.
5. Microsoft's OneNote to rule them all
