21st Century Learning Objectives.


PLAINVIEW, NY-- ELMO USA Corporation is proud to announce the creation of ELMO Academy, a comprehensive program of professional development workshops that provide teachers with essential skills to integrate ELMO's 21st century classroom technology to advance student outcomes. Teachers will be shown firsthand how to create dynamic lessons that enhance learning, interaction and creativity as well as improve the academic performance of their students.

“As the leading document camera manufacturer in the K-12 market, we collect a lot of feedback from our customers which highlights a collective desire for a professional development program which is teacher-centered, subject-driven and grade level oriented,” says Matt Takekoshi, President of ELMO USA, “ELMO Academy not only meets those needs, but is delivered by an experienced group of former educators who can relate very well with the classroom teacher."

ELMO Academy not only offers workshops on ELMO products, but also provides solutions for the total classroom technologies. Whether your teachers need to advance their skills with document cameras, interactive whiteboards or student response systems, ELMO Academy has the expertise to develop and deliver the right professional development solution for schools. Workshops include guidance on how to pair competing products with ELMO products for optimal classroom technology solutions.

"We realize that to simply sell great products is not nearly enough, we must also offer our customers the highest quality professional development which enables them to maximize their return on investment in our products," says Takekoshi.

Courses are designed for educators currently using ELMO products. Workshops offer a full day of continued education, six hours, with a maximum of 15 participants. Workshops can be custom designed to fit a specific subject. Multiple-day workshop pricing is available.
