The Technology Staff Development Lab at CHS
The Technology Staff Development Lab (TSDL) at CHS provides faculty with a one-stop-shop for training related to technology, and teaching and learning; collaborative opportunities to discuss current technology research and theory; innovative and practical teaching strategies; and knowledge of resources to support technology-enhanced/driven course development. Additionally, the TSDL provides a space for faculty to learn technologies new to them and experiment with emerging technologies for teaching. Here they explore, learn, refine, and perfect the use of technology in teaching with Technology Integration Specialist support. This space is open to all Chelmsford teachers for Technology PD for both in-person and virtual professional development offerings.
REMOTE DISTANCE LEARNING
The Technology Department has transitioned from supporting teachers in their classrooms with their technology hardware, software, PD workshops and co-teaching in the classroom to supporting those activities in a remote setting.
The Technology Department continues their support of all teachers and students in their technology use which has become even more important as teachers and students transition their work to online sources. The Technology Integration Specialists and Librarians are offering Professional Development courses to Teachers on an ongoing basis. Teachers receive an invitation in their email and choose the workshops which best suit their needs.
Chelmsford teachers and students have been primarily using Google as the platform for curriculum and communication and will continue to do so. The Technology Department is supporting teacher use of the Google apps.
