I’ve put together a professional development packet for you to download and use within your school or school district. Here is how it works.
Educators don’t have time to stay after school for staff development, but most, drive to work. Some educators may be reluctant to utilize new technologies, but most know how to operate a CD player. Educators are being asked to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of every learner every day.
The A.T.TIPSCAST is a free podcast that provides strategies to help educators differentiate instruction. As someone who organizes staff development workshops for your school or school district, download the episodes in each volume and burn them to a CD. Download the question booklet for that volume, print it out, and put it with your newly burned CD. Devise a method for distribution and then distribute to staff. E-mail me to get a copy of the answer booklet with all the answers in it. You’re done!
With minimal effort you’ve introduced three awareness level staff development workshops that educators can take without ever leaving their car! That’s over 3 and a half hours worth of professional development content at your fingertips with more to come as additional volumes of the A.T.TIPSCAST are completed (Volume #4 isin production now)!
Download these files to make your own staff development workshop out of the A.T.TIPSCAST!

Hi Chris –
What a great idea for a PD! I am in the throes of downloading/burning all of the first 3 volumes. (I wonder if I should ask for Media Center/IT help on the ‘burning’ portion of this quest?)
Would you please email to me the Answer Keys for each of the first 3 volumes?
Thanks….and keep up the good work!
Thanks David! I will send those straight away! Let me know how it goes and if there is anything I can do to support you.
I am downloading all three volumes to CD to provide PDT to my OT/PT department. Could you please email me the answer booklets? My OT/PT coordinator is going to attempt to offer CEU’s for therapists who pass the tests.
Thanks for all the time and effort you have out into this innovative way of offering information to staff!
I also need vol.4 answer booklet!
You got it Sandra! I’ll send them to your e-mail address. I hope you enjoy them!
