Complete our brief survey about ECED Bytes™ (you'll receive a free gift)
Our hope is to create something similar to "teachers pay teachers", where faculty and other professional development providers share and sell "byte" size training materials.
For example, let's say you want to support your staff/students regarding a new reading strategy or how to coach a parent of a child with autism...but you aren't a literacy or autism expert and you only have about 20 minutes to share the info.
You would come to our site/online store, browse an extensive library of content, and then download (for a small fee) one of three types of ECED Bytes™: PPT content that you can insert directly into your course or training PPT deck, an adult learning activity (for f2f or virtual teaching), or a way to measure student/staff learning (i.e., we call these measurement bytes™).
Right now, we are piloting several ECED Bytes™ related to SEL. You may access and use these Bytes, and in we ask that you complete a 15 minute survey.
Please click here to complete the survey.
Based upon your interest and willingness, you'll receive additional draft bytes and surveys to complete.
