Help! My unitedstreaming Implementation Rep Has Sent Me 15 School Kits…Now What Do I Do!
Hi! I’m Stephen Wakefield, Discovery Education Implementation Representative. I help administrators and teachers in parts of Texas and Iowa get the most out of their unitedstreaming accounts, and from time to time, I will be guest blogging here on the Implementation page.
While reading Matt’s earlier blog on the unitedstreaming School Kits, some of you may have been nervously eying a pile of those kits in the corner of your office and wondering what to do with them. If you are the District Librarian, Tech Director, Curriculum Director or even Superintendent of a large district, have recently received a large shipment of kits, and are now trying to figure out how to get those materials into the hands of teachers at the school level, here are some suggestions:
1) Leverage Available Resources- You don’t have to do it all alone! Look to people in your school system who would naturally handle a resource like unitedstreaming, like tech coordinators and librarians, and ask for their help in getting the material in the kits into the hands of teachers through a unitedstreaming training. If they need training on unitedstreaming, your Implementation Rep can provide FREE “Train the Trainer” training for you. Call 800-323-9084 for details.
2) Empower People!- Okay, your librarian is stretched and the tech coordinator has too many fires to put out. Empower someone else! Choose someone with some computer savvy and a willingness to train others and distribute the materials in the kit. Again, if they need training, your Implementation Rep can provide it, for FREE!
3) Work Directly With Your Implementation Rep- Okay, you can’t find anyone to help? Your Implementation Rep is there to help! If you are willing to travel to each school to distribute the contents of the kits, your Implementation Rep can provide a FREE training on unitedstreaming for your teachers. These trainings are conducted over the phone and the Internet, and can be scheduled to meet your needs. Again, call 800-323-9084 for details.
Do you have a success story for how you’ve distributed unitedstreaming school kits in your district? Want to find out who your Implementation Rep is? Shoot me a comment and let me know! I look forward to hearing from you!
