This training has been developed to help early childhood professionals use technology in their classrooms. During the training you will be able to view several short videos that show how technology can be used effectively. You will be asked to download the Participant Handbook and print it out. You will use it to reflect on your own practice related to technology, to explore standards and position statements and to make recommendations for the future.
Free Parking is available in the Jefferson Ave Center parking lot at the SW corner of Long St. and Jefferson Ave. Please print parking pass available on the Action for Children website (click on “Parking” in “About” section). Some additional parking is available behind AFC weekdays after 5:30pm & on Saturdays – AFC staff will direct visitors on where to park. Disability parking is located next to the back door of our building. Please note that our front door is locked after 5 p.m. and on weekends, so class participants must enter through our back door (east side of building). Also note that the building will close 15 minutes after classes conclude. Since the temperatures in our building fluctuate, we recommend dressing in layers so that you can be comfortable.
