Virtual workshops for educators and parents

Educators and parents play an important role in supporting student success through the effective use of technology in the classroom and at home. By equipping both educators and parents with the foundational skills in using Apple educational tools, we can help promote student engagement and provide rich learning experiences.

Compugen has a resident bilingual digital coach and Apple Professional Learning Specialist (APLS) available to deliver hands-on workshops for educators and parents in Quebec. These sessions will be held in French and will help you leverage the Apple ecosystem to enrich lesson plans and encourage students through interactive learning.

The virtual sessions you can choose from include: 

1. Drawing with iPad (teachers)
