EDCO Education offers a top notch Training Team for the K-12 Educational market. Our goal is to help you accelerate learning through the application and use of technology in the classroom. Our Specialists are experienced, certified K-12 teachers with the ability to relate the technology to actual classroom instruction.
Our Professional Development focuses on classroom technology integration, lesson design using the technology and best practices. We believe that both Product Orientation and Professional Development are necessary but view them very differently. We are determined to listen to your goals and work with you to develop the model and format that will align with your teaching objectives.
We approach Professional Development from the perspective of the teacher and student engagement; helping the teacher understand the device in application and use. Product Orientations are equipment-centric with a focus on operational functions, features and benefits of the product. At the completion of a Product Orientation, we ensure the user is comfortable with set-up and operation of the device.
