Dedicated to Improving Student Motivation and Literacy

We focus on evolving curriculum, instructional practices, and assessments to meet the changing needs of contemporary students.











Tomorrow’s Education Network provides professional development in instructional technology to school organizations and communities with a focus on evolving curriculum, instructional practices, and assessments to meet the changing needs of contemporary students. Our services are delivered through a series of one-on-one consulting with administrators and step-by-step curriculum innovation coaching with teachers and instructional designers.

We assist school leaders with the development of custom training programs that meet organizational goals for administrators and educational requirements for students. Our delivery methods vary and may include: onsite visits, webinar sessions, and conference calls.

Webinar sessions can be on any topic offered. Webinar experiences include a permanent recording of the session that can be replayed. There are two types of sessions. 1) Large group session means that the participants can type in questions and communicate through limited interaction tools. 2) Individual / Small group session or many people in one location means that the participants can broadcast their voices/images and speak openly with the presenter. Webinars are ideal as follow up sessions to keynotes, presentations, or workshops. They provide a permanent product that can be used for turnkey purposes by schools. Consider interviews with presenters, Q & A sessions, or feedback sessions as additional options.
