Cutting-Edge, Tech-Focused, and Innovative Online Courses
Your Ideal Summer PD is Here
It's no secret that Eduspire's courses are focused on classroom tech integration, but we're continually developing new courses and refining course content to provide a unique and relevant experience for all of our course-takers. Below are some newer courses that we feel won't be like any other PD you've ever taken, leaving you excited to implement fresh ideas and new classroom technologies immediately.
Online June 17 | Register by June 6 | Instructor: Allison Mackley
This course examines how to use your teacher presence in virtual instructional environments to humanize online learning. By fostering academic and social connections, teachers can build empathy, personalize learning and increase student motivation.

Online July 8 | Register by June 27 | Instructor: Ken Kay
UPDATE - Course now includes a Sphero Robot!

Computer programming develops learner skills and knowledge with problem solving, critical thinking, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) curriculum. Through engaging challenges coding encourages perseverance, work ethic, collaboration, inquiry, and research, as well as supporting tasks found in everyday living. This course will help teachers get started with age appropriate coding activities, tools, and tasks to introduce your students to computational thinking and computer science and connect them to all areas of the common core curriculum.
(EDU 964) - Online July 15 | Register by July 4 | Instructor: Kevin McGuire
Comes with 360 degree camera at no additional cost!

This course examines the emerging technologies of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) and their use in the classroom. Participants will learn the history of this medium and methods for infusing VR and AR into their curriculum to enhance student engagement. Various applications will be covered included Google Expeditions, Discovery VR, and YouVisit. Participants will also learn how to prepare their students to author their own VR experiences using a 360 degree camera.

NEW! Online May 5 | HURRY: Register by April 25 | Instructor: Missy Halcott

Although technology integration should happen universally in grades K-12, we often find educators at the early elementary levels struggling to apply course content to their level. This course was developed with a focus on assisting educators to implement instructional media in balanced but purposeful ways, learning from innovative elementary educators and exploring best practices in integration for our youngest population of learners.
There's still time to get your PD credits for this school year - but if you're already thinking ahead to summer, we've got that covered too!
An Exciting New Course We're Developing...
COMING SOON: 3D Printing
Instructor: Jenny Krzystowczyk | Includes a 3D printer!

Creating and using 3D printing encourages critical thinking and problem solving skills in students. Course learners will develop the design skills necessary to guide students through the printing process through software review, printer experience, and experimental design. The ability to create, code, and design a product aligns with ISTE standards as well.

Countdown to ISTE - 64 Days!
With the largest national EdTech conference only a little over 2 months away, there's plenty to look forward to. Eduspire is attending and, in February, we gave away a conference pass to the lucky winner of our monthly "Giving Back" contest. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces. We also asked our Twitter followers what they are most looking forward to at # ISTE19, out of a small selection of available topics, and the answers were evenly split between "Coding Demystified" and "GameStorm EDU." Coincidentally, we have EdTech courses about coding and gamification !
June 23-26
Congratulations to the 2019 KTI STARs!
Becoming a STAR is something to be proud of! Each participant has been nominated by their principal as a teacher who effectively uses technology in the classroom. Eduspire is proud to again reward innovation by sponsoring the Keystone Technology Innovator program in partnership with PAECT in 2019, providing room and board at the Keystone Technology Integrator Conference held at Shippensburg University during the week of July 22 through July 26, where course takers will participate in the week-long Summit by attending a variety of sessions led by instructional technology experts.
