Integrating Technology PreK-12 Workshops

ASSET/Eight Workshops – Workshops Available at no Charge!

ASSET continues to provide districts and schools with a host of workshops for the classroom educator and parent community. We can provide hands-on workshops in a computer lab for 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours or any customized timeframe you may have. If you do not have a computer lab available, ASSET will even provide whole group presentations. There is also the option of scheduling a workshop and utilizing the ASSET computer lab.

The focus of an ASSET/Eight workshop will be the integration of technology including PBS web resources and on air programming into the classroom. An ASSET workshop can meet the needs of any grade level and subject from Pre-K through 12th grade. Grade levels and subject area specialists can be combined in the same workshop, or the workshop can specialize and focus on specific areas, according to the district/school needs and goals.
