Summer is speeding by quickly. It seems like everyone just left school for the summer break. Now, it is nearly time to return. Before that happens, we have MS ACTE. View the video below to help you decide how to get in the right mind set. Enjoy!
All of us at the RCU including MDE officials hope to see everyone in Jackson at the Convention Center. Many informative sessions are scheduled for all pathways to help you have a successful, amazing beginning of the school year. You won’t wish to miss a session.
In case you do not remember the dates for MS ACTE, the conference is starting at lunch on Wednesday, June 29 and continues through lunch on Friday, August 1. Be sure to bring your laptops or electronic devices. These will be helpful for participation in many of the sessions scheduled.
For those needing COOL and other professional learning opportunities, course offerings can be found at http://www.rcu.msstate.edu/Professional-Learning/Upcoming-Professional-Learning.aspx. Beginning dates along with costs can be viewed on the page. New courses have been added and will continue for a few more weeks.
We have a new course coming this fall. It is an assessment course. You will have the opportunity to earn 1 CEU or 5 SEMI. The course is strictly online and will last approximately two weeks. Be looking for more details on this new addition.
As the school year starts, all CT programs have a safety/orientation unit. You might wish to consider including information from High Impact. Many links are included on the page for different areas like keyboarding, digital citizenship, and Microsoft Office.
If your students create resumes, this next site may be of help to you. Five tips from HR representatives are given to assist students with creating effective resumes.
Digital media instructors, everyone for that matter, may like this site. It is information about photography and has an illustration for angle views. Our students like to see themselves being recognized. This may provide some insight into getting the best shot of them.
Courses may be requested at this time for the upcoming school year. Please send all requests to the Help Desk. They may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use this same email address if you have any questions or concerns regarding Canvas, courses, assessment, and more.
