Ready to Run PD: Fall Update

November 5, 2018The Nearpod Team

Hey hey hey, PD people!

You’ve kicked off the school year…was that only eight-or-so weeks ago? It feels like another lifetime. Now, you’re deep in the weeds. We know that sometimes, PD slips off your plates because, as one principal put it, “School happens.”

We’ve got good news for you! We’ve added new sessions to our PD collection: follow up workshops for some of our most beloved series, and the intro to a new one. These new updates can deepen the learning you’ve already started and inject something fresh as the year unfolds. They will help you take care of school…and still, plan awesome PD.
