MOESC Now Offering Intermediate Level Technology Training and Support
Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center is excited to announce Intermediate Level Technology training and support for educators. These online classes are designed to assist teachers and administrators in designing highly engaging lessons for students in traditional, blended, hybrid, or remote classrooms.
The new technology training series, “Guide to a Successful Google Classroom, Intermediate Level,” is available for elementary and secondary teachers. The goal is to help teachers engage students more deeply by using and creating content with a wide variety of technology tools.
The classrooms have a wide variety of materials, activities, and resources for teachers to design successful lessons for their students. The secondary series includes 24 different topics containing more than 55 detailed lesson plans with differentiation suggestions to meet the needs of all learners. The “How-To” section includes many connections to help teachers recreate the lessons. Videos and websites are included to support the lessons and provide help for students working online. They also explain how to engage students in the content.
The Intermediate Level Series provides educators with beyond-the-basics content written exclusively for Mid-Ohio ESC districts. The lessons differ from the elementary series by including more Google Apps and more in-depth ways to use advanced options to continue challenging all students. Each topic lesson includes a detailed description, research or interactive websites, videos, Google Slides with step-by-step directions, and several lessons created as a Hyperdoc, Google document, or slide presentation. Highlights of the detailed series include the Travel the World by Google Earth project, NASA Robots, and Ocean Pollution.
The beginner’s level was released in the Fall of 2020. Now Mid-Ohio ESC is releasing the new leveled classrooms using Google Maps, Earth, Drawings, Slides, Docs, Sheets, Sites, Forms, Jamboard, Code, and Audacity. Teachers will have access to both elementary and secondary levels to explore all the lessons.
Michelle Vance, the creator of the technology classrooms, noted, “It is such a pleasure to create a training series to help teachers with new lessons and ideas, and provide resources to immediately use in the classroom with all learners. Teachers work hard to create lessons using technology, and I enjoy helping them!”
Interested educators from member districts are welcome to access the technology classrooms, whether beginner and intermediate levels, by visiting Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center’s website at www.moesc.net and selecting the Teaching and Learning tab.
