Professional Development Needs Survey
All staff including Central Office staff should complete this survey by December 15, 2017.
Each year our cooperative sends out a survey to determine the professional development needs of the educators in our region. This information is EXTREMELY important to us as we plan sessions for the coming months. There are a few changes that I would like to point out before you begin the survey.
"Arkansas is the first state ever to deploy Learning Blade with a computer coding aspect. "
Are You Utilizing Learning Blade?
Learning Blade is a statewide initiative to increase access for computer science and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers in every middle school. Grade levels involved are determined locally. This is a supplemental, game-based online STEM career awareness system and is not intended to be used as an intervention curriculum.
Learning Blade challenges students to take on game-based projects that expose them to different aspects of STEM careers. Arkansas is the second state to implement Learning Blade statewide and, at the Governor's request, Arkansas is the first state ever to deploy Learning Blade with a computer coding aspect. Students who have participated in the pilot expressed their "enjoyment" of the missions.
