Date:  8/4/09 – 8/5/09
When:  9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Where:  Digital Edge Learning
Loma Linda, California
Who:  Professional Development Team

I had the opportunity to observe the professional development team at Digital Edge Learning train high school teachers with the Interwrite software and hardware.  During the training, the teachers interacted with the program and watched demonstrations of its use.  Although the program didn’t always connect properly, and they showed frustration when it didn’t have features that pertained to their curriculum, teachers did see how purposeful it was for students and how their teaching would be easier in the long run.  Teachers knew they had a lot of work ahead of them in order to use the Interwrite to its fullest potential.
