Professional Learning Pathways

Professional Learning Pathways provide teachers with highly customizable virtual learning opportunities to ensure an effective Agile Mind implementation. The Pathways meet immediate middle- and high-school teacher professional development needs to optimize mathematics instruction using Agile Mind’s digital curricular resources for remote, hybrid, or in-person instruction this fall.

Just-in-Time PD for New and Experienced Teachers

Agile Mind’s Professional Learning Pathways below address a series of topics for new or experienced faculty and include interactive synchronous (live) sessions, asynchronous (self-paced) learning exercises, and community engagement for application, practice, and collaboration with peers to improve teacher practice through a distributed, multi-dimensional learning format.

“This PD sets the bar for how Virtual PDs should be conducted…it should be shared with all divisions/schools so that teachers are able to see a truly engaging virtual experience.”

I had no idea what to expect but Agile Mind seems amazing. Thank you for providing us with training that was not only informative but included some of the teaching strategies suggested within Agile Mind. [the Agile Mind instructor] did an outstanding job of relaying information, giving us guidance, encouraging exploration, and answering all questions.”

Four Elements of Virtual Professional Learning

1. Prepare: Complete work in advance, such as a survey or reading.
2. Meet Virtually: Attend a live, virtual meeting with peers
3. Learn & Apply: Complete a set of asynchronous (self-paced) tasks, such as studying resources independently, reviewing tools for classroom application, and sharing and collaborating through an online professional learning community.
4. Review Data: Asynchronously/individually review and reflect on data related to use, progress, and student performance.

“Our teachers were worried about managing instruction remotely. They are thrilled with this support!”
