Technology for Teachers

Technology is continuously, and rapidly, evolving and requires ongoing learning.

At each Ignite Center New Teacher Workshop, our P-12 leaders often share and demonstrate technology tips and tools.

We also use technology to share resources with new teachers and St. Cloud State University graduates.

These are a few technology tools available to new teachers.

Toolkit for New Teachers

Our toolkit is chock-full of ideas and help for open house, parent communication, first days and the first week of school, preparing for a substitute teacher, wellness and staying grounded throughout the school year.



Our monthly videos reflect the stages new teachers go through in their first year of teaching. Gregg Hermerding, former media specialist in the Monticello School District, with content assistance from Milissa Walz, a Social Studies teacher in the Holdingford School District, created these monthly videos.
