Early Childhood TEC Center Services

Innovative professional development workshops, webinars, and programs designed to develop early childhood educators as leaders in technology integration in early childhood classrooms.

Connect with TEC Center

Erikson Institute’s Early Childhood TEC Center’s professional services are individually developed to support principals, district leaders, and individual teachers.

The goal of the TEC Center professional development workshops are to support educators to more successfully use and incorporate technology into their teaching and practice in an intentional, meaningful, and effective way. We support educators in developing technology resources and lesson plans for technology use with children directly but also support educators and administrators in using technology to communicate, connect, and engage with parents and caregivers.

We bring Erikson’s expertise directly to your staff – in-person, online, or a combination of both – so that your entire staff can participate and develop new skills in the context of their everyday activities.

“ To summarize the workshop: transformative, reaffirming. Our staff appreciated that the workshop formalized a lot of our thoughts and ideas regarding our Remote Learning Instructional practices. We have felt like we were kind of floundering for what to do with students and this helped us transform our perspective to see that a lot of the same principles apply, we only have to modify the vehicle of delivery instead of the content. ”
