It may seem daunting to begin incorporating technology into an afterschool program with either a simple activity or a project activity, yet many programs have done so with great success. Although there is no blueprint for getting started, this guide will help you and your staff develop the skills and confidence for introducing technology-enriched activities into your program.
The purpose of this guide is to help afterschool staff learn how to use the technology section of the National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning’s Afterschool Training Toolkit and other free resources for staff development. This guide includes practical suggestions and easy-to-follow guidelines for a variety of activities using the toolkit and its related resources.
This guide focuses on using a practical staff development model for learning about the six technology practices featured in the Afterschool Training Toolkit and how they can support learning. Each technology practice is introduced with two to four activities ranging in length from 15 to 20 minutes. Activities include watching videos, planning lessons, and reading related resources.
This is one of four professional development guides for use with the Afterschool Training Toolkit.
