A Personal Approach To Learning
This new teaching paradigm is a journey, not an event. At Ed Resources we believe teachers want access to a personal trainer, not a canned webinar or online FAQ. Our approach is different – it is offered over a three year period of time and our trainers will be there to support the teachers at every step in the process

This hands-on approach to learning is very beneficial to start building your local community of teacher support. We recommend Day 1 and Day 2 be delivered back-to-back so teachers have a full picture of the EdRedi Solution in the classroom.
Day 1 – Overview of pedagogy of 1:1 Classrooms:
In-depth review of all aspects of the classroom tablet and EdRedi software solution
Day 2 – Curriculum Integration using district digital resources:
Hands on work on project-based learning approaches utilizing existing curriculum and resources.
Training & Professional Development
Putting mobile devices in the hands of students is revolutionizing how content in delivered in the classroom. It provides the promise of personalized instruction for every child. But, this is a huge shift in instructional practice for most teachers. As we navigate the challenges, the payoff for our communities is enormous. Research unequivocally supports the power of indivdualized instruction being the single biggest differentiator (along with parental involvement) that can positively transform a learning environment. Not losing sight of the goal is key.
At Ed Resources, we understand teachers are at differing levels of readiness for this new classroom paradigm. For that reason, we offer various forms of learning for teachers embarking upon the EdRedi™ journey.
