Over 200 days of staff development and on-site coaching will be provided to schools participating in this Title III grant-funded opportunity as they work to utilize student-created multimedia to enhance learning at all stages of language acquisition.
Tech4Learning has been under contract with New York City to deliver high-quality professional development for over ten years, serving schools directly and supporting educational grants received by the Department of Education.
