The nine ESDs are supporting school districts statewide with a suite of continuous learning professional development opportunities. Learning opportunities focus on the “Why”, the “How”, and the “What” for implementing systems and structures that leads to quality learning experiences for students.
Learning Management System Training
Districts across the state are streamlining how they deliver remote instruction via one or two “Learning Management Systems” (LMS platforms) through which teachers deliver instruction and engage students in learning. The AESD is supporting these efforts by offering professional learning and technical support to educators and district leaders focused on five LMS platforms: Canvas, Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Schoology, and Seesaw.
