Preparing Teachers to Transform the Classroom ExperiencePlan for Core Training
Engaging. Reinvigorating. Empowering.
Our professional development is designed to create dynamic learning experiences for educators through powerful and flexible instructional support, as well as an ongoing professional community.
PLTW’s approach to professional development prepares educators to lead the engaging PLTW experience in their classrooms and also provides continuing support.
Engage in In-Depth Learning Experiences Through Core Training
Core Training immerses teachers in a hands-on, collaborative learning environment that challenges them to look at their classrooms in a new way. Teachers take on the role of a student, engage in in-depth exploration of PLTW coursework, and gain invaluable experience to take back to their classrooms.
Core Training helps teachers build skills and confidence around activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) learning; prepares educators to become facilitators and coaches; and empowers them to bring learning to life through their PLTW program.Learn More
It's a transformational experience for the way you teach.
The teacher is always the key, and Project Lead The Way has such a phenomenal training program for teachers.
The networking and building of meaningful relationships during Core Training was only the beginning, and I feel that it will continue to grow for years to come. I am honored that I get to be a part of such a great teaching community that inspires our children for the future.
Unparalleled Classroom Support
PLTW provides teachers with comprehensive support and classroom resources.
Through the Community tool within myPLTW, teachers can connect and share experiences and expertise with fellow educators from across the nation who are teaching the same PLTW courses. Community has a number of exciting features teachers can use to network and stay engaged, including the ability to ask questions and comment, like, and bookmark posts. Additionally, teachers can share files and follow peers to stay connected and share insights, advice, and best practices.
We also offer a number of resources to help districts, schools, and teachers build strong PLTW programs including an Implementation Guide, best practices, regional and national events, and more.
Additionally, our Solution Center provides support to help teachers focus their energy on what they do best: inspiring students.
