Background

Webinar series:
Jacaranda Resources 101 

Free, professional development webinars to help you get the most out of your Jacaranda resource for Years 7-10.

Want to set yourself up for a great school year in just an hour or less? Then our Jacaranda Resources 101 webinars are for you! Running from end of January to March, we have sessions to meet the needs of all schools and teachers – from getting started with your resource to how to differentiate and inspire.

These webinars are a great opportunity to learn how to get the most out of your resource and get insider advice from the publishers or authors of your resource. All sessions are perfectly suited to both new and current Jacaranda users, and are broken up into three phases:

  1. 60min getting started webinars – great for covering the basics of your resource, from getting around to how to access all the extra media and materials available to you
  2. 30min product training webinars – bite-sized sessions packed full of tips to get the most out of the exciting features in your resource
  3. 60min professional learning webinars – learn new teaching and learning strategies for taking your resources to the next level in your classroom

We recommend all Jacaranda schools to attend the getting started webinars and a mix of product training and professional learning webinars – depending on what interests you as a teacher.

All attendees will receive a Professional Development certificate!

We hope you can make it and look forward to you joining us.
