✪ What is the CTech Challenge?
The CTech Challenge is an exciting new part of the technology professional development program for the 17-18 school year. You can complete educational technology challenges at your own pace, on your own time. For each challenge you successfully complete, you will earn a badge and points. Awards will be given on a monthly basis to top point earners. You will be competing for individual awards and for building level awards.
There are two types of challenges – monthly challenges and achievement challenges. Each month from November – April there will be three new monthly challenges. All monthly challenges are worth 100 points. You do not have to complete the challenges in the months they are released (But there may be a surprise perk if you do!). Achievement challenges are available for the entire duration of the challenge and have higher point values.
Monthly top teachers will be awarded a special surprise each month. The monthly top building will receive a CTech Jeans Day! Overall awards include exciting classroom technology updates.
✪ How do I get started?
Check out www.ctechchallenge.com to get started. All challenges, earned badges and program information can be found on this site! The Technology Department will visit each building once a month for a Q&A lunch session if you need help with the concepts in the challenges.
✪ Monthly Help Sessions
Each month the Tech Department will hold a lunch session in each building. Teachers who have questions or would like help with the concepts covered in the challenges should plan to attend.
