Teachers and School
Charter Schools USA
Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, FL
To enable teachers to excel using technology in the classroom
100% of teachers who attended the workshop are excited to see how SMART solutions increase student engagement.
Charter Schools USA partnered with SMART’s Efficacy & Implementation team to develop a scalable professional development offering with a mix of Train-the-Trainer and Direct-to-Teacher instruction. Together, they designed and developed innovative Power & Potential workshops that empowered Charter Schools USA attendees to become SMART champions in their schools.
A new Charter Schools USA Edmodo community site – with a wealth of SMART resources, lessons and training materials – was also launched to support classroom adoption.
Active learning workshops focused on how attendees could use a technologyrich learning environment to enhance their best teaching practices, and achieve more instances of outstanding success in their classrooms.
Workshop attendees were taught how to scale their training for other educators in their schools. Trained teachers could then show their colleagues how to effectively integrate SMART solutions into their learning environments.
Charter Schools USA Involved: 35 schools
Charter Schools USA States involved: FL, NC, and LA
“Knowing our schools have the knowledge to integrate SMART technology to impact student achievement is priceless!”
