With federal grant funds, the National Partnership for Juvenile Services (NPJS) was able to either update existing training material or develop new material to support the professional development of educators in juvenile confinement facilities. Each training module listed below contains a Facilitator Guide, a Participant Manual, a PowerPoint Presentation, and video segments from the NPJSpeaks Series highlighting nationally recognized experts speaking on the training topic. We hope you find the resources beneficial to your training efforts. Requests for additional training and technical assistance support can be directed to the NPJS office at NPJS@me.com.
Educators in confinement often are constrained in their use of technology in the classroom because of safety and security concerns, budget challenges, or unfamiliarity with technology terms, devices, and opportunities. This course is designed to address concerns of both the educator and the facility administration, guide participants to explore and practice using a range of devices and applications, and become familiar with terminology. Participants will develop a plan for next steps to enhance their use of technology in the classroom and thus to enhance the educational experience of their students.
