ISD’s Atomic Learning Subscription Ending In June
We are writing to let you know that the Educational Tech Department has decided to end our district’s subscription to Atomic Learning effective June 25, 2017.
Consequently, staff will no longer be able to access Atomic Learning resources effective June 26, 2017.
What Does This Mean for You?
We want staff to be able to continue using Atomic Learning through the end of the subscription. As a result, staff will still be able to view and receive pay for watching Atomic Learning videos until June 25.
In order to receive compensation, staff must submit compensation requests and activity logs to the Educational Technology Office by the end of the workday June 26. Instructions for accessing compensation are available on Connect.
How Can I Receive Compensation for Tech Learning After June 25?
The Ed Tech Department recognizes the importance of providing a variety of opportunities for staff to learn and grow in the use of technology to support powerful instruction. We also recognize that for many staff, the summer provides a prime opportunity to not only learn about new digital tools, but it also provides time to reflect on how best to use those tools in their classrooms.
To support professional development for teachers, the Ed Tech Department will offer a series of face-to-face classes this summer for staff. Additionally, we have chosen a new platform for online professional development. Details on this new platform will be coming soon and in time for you to use this summer. We believe that both the in-person opportunities, and our new online learning platform, will support staff in their desire to grow in their practice this summer.
