Drobots and Our Extensive Experience
Having served over 100,000 students in the classroom and trained over a 1,000 teachers to deliver drone programming at the K-12 level, our top priority is to exceed your expectations with professional development sessions that are both informative and enjoyable.
Drobots’ Professional Development Includes:
Professional Development Catered To Your Needs and Your Schedule
Drobots prides itself on the ability to offer valuable, scalable and affordable professional development. Our primary goal is to respect the educator’s busy schedule and conduct virtual trainings that are both comprehensive and efficient. The Drobots team continues to innovate to maintain high quality virtual training for all teachers who purchase our curriculum. We use the power of video conferencing to enable intimate professional development sessions with our curriculum design instructors. We pride ourselves on maintaining an open and flexible schedule to accommodate the educator’s busy schedules.
Flexible Scheduling Link So You May Choose The Time(s) That Work Best.
Over-communication is one of Drobots’ core values. Therefore, when we plan a professional development session(s) (PD) it is our primary goal to set the proper expectations. Prior to every virtual session, Drobots shares a teacher welcome package which includes: your curriculum instructor’s bio and experience and an extremely organized Professional Development agenda. Our goal is to ensure you understand and fully trust the “who,” “what,” and “why” of our trainings. Again, we fully respect the demanding schedule of all teachers, so our job is to ensure that we will use our time together in an efficient and productive manner. Following each PD virtual session, your curriculum instructor will send you a summary email detailing all of the content and objectives that were covered and reviewed during your session. This email will also communicate the goals and key takeaways from the session, which will include a full outline of next action steps for the next scheduled meeting.
We Believe In Face-To-Face Meetings and Trainings
Since an on location training is always the best method of delivering PD, our goal is to ensure that we simulate, to the best of our ability, a live training through the use of video conferencing. It is of the upmost importance that we make you, the teacher, feel 100% comfortable during our PD sessions. Therefore, in order to accomplish this objective, our curriculum instructors use visual and auditory aids to conduct our trainings. Developing a strong trusting relationship is important, so the ability to communicate with body language and facial expressions allow our curriculum instructors to connect with teachers with a meaningful and personal approach. We believe this enhances the learning and understanding of the materials being taught.
Engagement, Confidence Building and Over-Communication
Due to the thorough preparation and planning, Drobots Curriculum instructors are able to fully engage teachers throughout each PD session. Our goal during each session is: to over-communicate our teachings and listen to your feedback, to provide an abundance of advice and share best practices, and to build extreme confidence in the subject manner, so the teachers feel secure and knowledgeable come classroom time.
Video Record Each Professional Development Session
All Drobots-led virtual PD sessions are recorded to the cloud for two important reasons: First, it’s vital for teachers to have an internal record of each session to enhance the training and maintain quality control throughout the process. Second, providing you with a copy of the video recording becomes a wonderful and useful resource for the teacher(s) to refer back to in a continuous manner, so may always review the material and refresh the key takeaways at a moment’s notice. Drobots uses Zoom video conferences which allows us to record to the cloud.
