Infusing Technology STEM Toolbox Program

The WV Center for Professional Development's Infusing Technology program exposes West Virginia educators to powerful technology tools and resources for instruction and student engagement. Teachers and principals learn how to integrate high levels of technology to increase students' critical thinking, reasoning, creativity, collaboration, and problem solving skills.

The Infusing Technology STEM Toolbox Program will extend teachers' exposure to these technology resources and create a library of high quality STEM tools that educators can check out and borrow throughout the school year. WVCPD will provide multiple classroom sets of devices and tools that support technology integration and STEM education in the classroom.

Any West Virginia educator can request to borrow a classroom set of devices, however priority will be given to those teachers who have attended any previous Infusing Technology Summer Academy. The IT Summer Academy workshops provided participants with an opportunity to work with their peers, collaborate together on content delivery, and design best practices for classroom management with the STEM tools. Educators will have four weeks to borrow a classroom set of STEM tools which will include two weeks of integration and two weeks for the shipping process, at no cost to them.

NBC Candidate Support Provider Session - Northern Session

This one-day support for Candidate Support Providers is designed to provide new and experienced candidate support providers with the practical knowledge, skills, and tools needed to successfully support teacher candidates during their National Board Certification® process. This course will explore the following topics:

• Explain the fundamentals of candidate support including the Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, the roles and responsibilities of support providers, and the different types of candidate support.

• Interpret and apply NBPTS guidelines that ensure ethical candidate support.

• Explain the processes used for scoring portfolio entries and assessment center exercises and apply these scoring policies when supporting retake candidates.

• Apply adult learning principles, use effective communication skills, and set biases aside when working with candidates.

• Prepare yourself to review portfolio entries by collecting and reviewing background resources such as the NBPTS Standards, portfolio instructions, and scoring guide.

• Review portfolio entries, locate elements of evidence, and provide meaningful feedback to candidates to help them deepen their level of thinking about their teaching practices.

The content in this course has been designed specifically for public and private school personnel and those in higher education, professional associations, and other education organizations who wish to support candidates in the process of certification by NBPTS. The primary target audience is comprised of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs). However, this course has been designed to also benefit non-NBCTs who are unfamiliar with the certification process and other educators, such as professional development staff.

National Board Certification Awareness -Northern Session

The West Virginia Center for Professional Development (WVCPD) has a long history of supporting teachers through the National Board Certification process. Our NBC Support Program is an in-depth professional development opportunity that allows participants to review and better understand the complete National Board Certification standards and process.

This begins in the summer with face-to-face professional development, and continues throughout the NBC process with monthly meetings with peers and/or expert mentors.


The National Board Awareness Session will expose teachers to the process of national board certification as well as the rigor, challenge and commitment the process entails. This awareness day is a prerequisite to the full National Board Support session that follows on July 24 and 25, 2018.

With the release of 2017 NBCs, WV is ranked 17th in the nation based on percentage of NBC’s.
