A school teacher finds workshops for educators on the Professional Development Services section of the Scholastic website, as of April 2015. Sites such as Creativity Workshops, ASCD.org, Ed Tech Teacher and BER.org also contain information about different summer and year-round education workshops for teachers.
The workshops listed on the Scholastic website are conducted by members of the organization and utilize researched tactics to help educators strengthen their ability to convey concepts to students. Workshops focus on literacy and reading, as well as on general student engagement and different types of instruction. Some workshops are designed to focus on specific education levels, such as early childhood, while others are applicable for teachers working at the kindergarten level all the way up to the 12th grade.
Workshops offered by Ed Tech Teacher focus on the role of technology within the classroom and the teaching process. The workshops are offered during the summer to allow teachers the highest level of access to the courses and are offered in multiple cities, as some teachers are not able to travel across the country just for a workshop. Each workshop is meant to highlight different types of educational processes and best practices, as well as effective strategies for incorporating technology into lesson plans.
