    Each session will take between 15 to 25 minutes to complete. To complete these activities, start with the  Training Flipchart for the session you intend to go through. Within each activity there are hands on portions titled "Your Turn". Follow the directions to complete each "Your Turn" activity. If you have difficulty completing a task, watch the Training Video portion of the section for additional help. Even if you don't have problems, it is a good idea to watch the short video, as they often present a different perspective on the task you are learning. Also, each session may include Additional Resources needed to complete the Your Turn activities. Please download the resources to your home drive or desktop to use them. Finally, there is a Training Handout that you can print for future reference if one is not provided at the training. Have fun and learn hard. 
     
    At the end of the year, you will receive recertification points or a certificate for the number of hours you completed in this Professional Development series. Currently it is 2 hours. Want to know how you can receive an additional 5 recertification points? See your Technology Resource Teacher.

    Promethean Training Ten Minute Tasks (Coming Soon)
    Below is a series of tasks that take no more than 10 minutes, each, to complete. As you work through these task sheets, you will need to create a Flipchart demonstrating certain tasks you have learned. Please be reminded that you will need to complete ALL task sheets even though you will only need to demonstrate some of the tasks in your final Flipchart. When you are finished, you will receive 5 recertification point for the completed tasks, and a flipchart using the tasks indicated in the chart below by the word "Demonstrate".
     
    To receive the 5 recertification points, email the completed checklist and a flipchart to your TRT. You will be awarded the points through My Learning Plan at the end of the school year, or a printed certificate at the time of completion.
