Empower User Group Meeting, with Linda Laughlin
September 14, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
We have scheduled several Empower User Group Face-to-Face Sessions for this school year. These are specifically for those who are responsible for managing their Empower sites. We are offering these sessions in different locations during the year, but we encourage ALL members who are using Empower to participate in each of these sessions. We will do our best to broadcast each session and ask that all participants register, ahead of time, for each session. Participants who have attended these sessions in the past have reported that they get much more out of the face-to-face sessions so we encourage members to attend in person when possible.
Lunch will be provided.

We have also organized a group of teachers who we refer to as Empower PowerUsers. They will specifically help teachers and other users of the software. They are all grounded in our vision for proficiency-based, customized learning and very familiar with the language we use here in Maine and New Hampshire. They will be offering periodic short Webinar Sessions during after-school hours. Recordings of former webinars, along with the contact information for our Empower PowerUsers, can be found at: http://mainecustomizedlearning.org/resources/empower/
