Empower Teacher Webinars

 

January 12th @ 3 p.m. & 6 p.m. CANCELLED

These two webinars will not have a specific focus. Our Teacher PowerUsers will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how they use Empower to customize learning for their learners.

We have organized a group of teachers who we refer to as Empower PowerUsers. They will specifically help teachers and other users with the software. They are all grounded in our vision for proficiency-based, customized learning and very familiar with the language we use here in Maine and New Hampshire. They will be offering periodic short Webinar Sessions during after-school hours. If there is a topic that you need covered by these Webinars, please email: Linda Laughlin: lindaflaughlin@gmail.com  Notice, below, the webinar series and recordings we have done this Fall.

Join us live as teachers who have been using Empower for several years demonstrate how to use the Empower software to customize the learning for each of their learners. Time will be available to ask questions, etc.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
