    As the end of the year approaches, there are several clean up tasks that should be accomplished to wrap up the school year. Not only should you be cleaning up your classroom, but all that technology you used this year should be cleaned up as well. We will dive deeper into cleaning our Google Classroom, Google Drive, Gmail and SeeSaw platforms. Participants will be given tips and tricks to organize some of these critical technologies. Come join us 5/4 from 6:30pm-8:00pm. 

    Illinois educators can earn 1.5 professional development hours from live attendance at this webinar.

    WELL Summit 2021

    IDEA is proud to support the 3rd Annual Women in Education: Leading and Learning (WELL) Summit to be held virtually on May 6, 2021. WELL is an event to empower, connect, inspire, support, celebrate and develop women in educational leadership.

    This virtual event will run from 9 am – 12 pm. In addition to great keynote speakers, attendees will hear messages from special guests, receive an #IamRemarkable paperweight gem, earn 3 professional development clock hours and be eligible for door prizes!

    New this year! Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms as well as impostor syndrome can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements. During an #IamRemarkable workshop, led by Google-trained facilitators, you will learn the importance of self-promotion in your personal and professional life and be equipped with tools to develop this skill. Participants will be invited to challenge the social perception around self-promotion.
