Technology Integration Staff Development Programs

New! Technology Academies:

PVUSD’s Technology Innovation Coaches are now bringing professional development opportunities to your site! Choose a Tech Academy from our menu of options, and learn how to integrate that technology into your curriculum.  The tech coaches will work with your site for about 4 weeks to provide you and your colleagues with the PD to learn how to use the technology, and then be with you in the classroom while you learn to integrate it into your curriculum.  And the best part? Once you’re done, your site will get to keep whatever technology is associated with your Academy (think coding robots, video production tools, etc).
