When you purchase a package of Online 1:1 Coaching Sessions, MisterD will work with your teachers via online conference for five consecutive weekly sessions on mastering specific EdTech competencies such as the ones listed below. Your faculty will progress through the topic, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the subject and, ultimately, a unit or lesson plan that is ready to roll out in class.
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of available topics. If there is a specific tool, piece of software, or pedagogical technique you would like MRD to cover with your faculty, we can customize a learning pathway to meet those needs.
Schedule a series of ongoing sessions to conceive, plan and create a Project-Based unit for your class. We will go step-by-step, constructing a meaningful, challenging and rewarding PBL activity for one of your upcoming units.
Getting the most out of Google Drive

Working With Video
Flip your classroom instruction with easy-to-use software at school or on your home computer. Generate short, fun video lessons for your students to watch at home so that they (and you) are free to apply what they have learned in your classroom. We will cover planning, creating, recording and publishing these videos in a series of sessions.

Digital Storytelling With the iPad
Learn to use the iPad to empower students to create digital stories across all content areas. These stories can be self-expression or assessment to showcase student mastery of content knowledge. Show your students how to create different types of digital stories– a personal narrative, a story that informs or instructs, and a story that documents an event.
Infographics as Assessment
Infographics are a visual representation of data and when students create them, they use information, visual, and technology literacies to demonstrate understanding of complex ideas. We will explore a collection of tools to help you develop formative or summative assessments that have students creating infographics to showcase their mastery of knowledge.
