Miami Dade County Public Schools – Miami-Sunset Adult Education Center PTN LEARN Teacher Training
On September 22, 2013, we held a PTN LEARN training session with the faculty of the Miami Dade County Public School System at Miami Sunset Adult Education Center. This PTN LEARN training session focused on the platform’s teaching functions. Topics ranged from uploading assignments, creating and setting deadlines for assignments to annotating assignments, providing feedback on assignment submissions, and digital classroom management.
During the training faculty members were organizing their content and learned how to manage and familiarize themselves with the planning, teaching, and networking functions in the PTN platform. The Miami Sunset Adult Education team has been using the platform to disseminate and streamline curated materials to facilitate support for teachers and case managers. PassTheNotes is thrilled to watch how effective and efficient the platform has allowed the faculty to share and distribute materials across their institution. The administrative team was also trained on how to manage the Administrative Suite to oversee classes, users, and published products. The PTN Administrative Suite facilitates digital teacher evaluations, supports digital content rights management, and gives administrators control to foster a save and productive learning environment.
Throughout the session, trainers provided an overview of each of the functions and made sure to listen, answer and clarify any questions posed by case managers, administrators, and teachers. By the end of the training, faculty members expressed their appreciation for taking the time to ensure a fuller comprehension of the platform’s features and functions.
