City Today - January 2011
Welcome to the January edition of The City Today!
Bringing you all the latest from Education City!
Targeted training sessions designed to help you meet your goals!
This month our Customer Service Team is excited to announced the launch of our new targeted training sessions designed to assist our subscribers in fully implementing Education City.
"We've found that some of our subscribers are using the resource in just the computer lab, or just the classroom," said Jamie McIntyre, Education City Customer Service Manager. "There are so many more ways to use Education City, so we've created this set of targeted training sessions to really zero in on how your school can get the most out of your subscription."
Each session will be offered for a minimal cost of $50 and will cover the following topics:
Computer Lab Learning - This session is a must-have for schools intending to use Education City in a lab environment. The session covers creating student groups, utilizing the myCity features for specific activities and the ever-popular PlayLive mental math arena.
Whole Class Learning - This session will teach you how to integrate Education City into your everyday lessons. The session covers Topic Tools to plan lessons, Whiteboard Play Mode, printing supplemental worksheets and searching for a particular topic to fit with your unit.
Differentiated Learning - Use Education City in your intervention, remediation and special education groups when you learn how to assess knowledge, track progress and individualize learning.
Administrative Functions - This administrative session focuses on student management, school-wide settings, curriculum standards, the Live Chat feature and other general usage issues. This session is essential for the main Education City point person to attend.
McIntyre says all four sessions are appropriate for any school and will teach you how to extend the value of your subscription to drive data, reporting and results. Check with your school, these sessions may be applicable towards Professional Development requirements.
To schedule a session, please contact our Customer Service Team at 800.995.5410 or message us via Live Chat - our NEW feature found under the Training tab in the Teacher Area.
