The Gamification of Technology Professional Development

In Gurnee School District 56, we have not only met that challenge, but we have conquered it! In this session, we will share proven, working strategies to present technology professional development that will leave your teachers begging for more. So much so, that our teachers have now gained a valuable tool set that has proven to raise student achievement in the classroom, as well as rewards them for sharing what they learned with others. Many teachers are now employing the same method of gamification that they have participated in, into their own methods of teaching.
