Exciting new changes to the 2017-2018 iPLC Program!

Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) are one of the most effective mechanisms to identify and cultivate innovative education practices.  For the past four years, our iPLC program has brought together diverse groups of educators to PEF to learn and share effective ways to integrate technology in the classroom.  As we go into our fifth year of the program, we want to leverage the expertise that we know exists in our Hamilton County schools to start localized iPLCs.  This year’s cohort will consist of iPLC Facilitators who will receive training and ongoing support to organize and run iPLCs in their schools.  A stipend will be awarded to iPLC Facilitators to honor their time and commitment.

Who should apply?  

The ideal candidate for an iPLC Facilitator is a Hamilton County educator who enjoys working with people and who has a demonstrated ability to collaborate, problem solve, and innovate.  They should also be comfortable trying new things.

Applicants must also be able to:

  • Attend all 4 iPLC Facilitator meetings held from 5:00-7:00pm on September 19, November 14, February 13, and April 10
  • Organize and lead monthly iPLC sessions at your school from October through April
  • Participate in the Teach with Tech Expo on April 28, 2018

Applications are currently open and the deadline to apply is September 11 at noon.  You can find out more and apply here.
