Customised Teacher Training Sessions

Teacher Dashboard is simple to use and fast to learn. Teachers can learn the basics in just a few minutes.

The CEO Sydney eLearning team provides comprehensive Teacher Training Sessions for all schools that implement Teacher Dashboard. The training sessions run for 1 hour and are conducted either via Google Hangout (Google's built-in video conferencing & chat system) or face-to-face with the CEO Sydney eLearning Team. Details of what's covered in the training are here.

To arrange a suitable date and time, please contact us directly.

Staff will be invited to attend the Teacher Training Session. This will be sent to you as an invitation to a Google Calendar event. TD Managers are encouraged to invite as many teachers from your school as possible to participate in the training. If attending via Google Hangout the TD Manager (or other staff member) connects their computer to a projector and speakers so staff can participate in the session. The session is hands-on, so please ask your staff to bring their own fully-charged laptop so they can actively participate.
