WenGroup Learn, a division of Wendelin Consulting Group, Inc. (WCG), provides professional development aimed at improving and increasing the integration of technology by your teachers as part of their everyday instruction — we're teaching teachers the skills to put technology to work for the benefit of themselves, their classroom and their students.
When you're ready to begin training, WenGroup Learn will assess your district's needs, available technology, skill levels and timeline, and then design a training package specifically for your teachers and/or staff.
The Professional Development provided by WenGroup Learn is a research driven method of continuous improvement and assessment. The contract is meant to be an annual and ongoing as we strive to grow with you and your staff. Our offerings will vary year to year based on our assessments, data collection, and analysis of your district's staff.
Our Philosophy on Professional Development is that one-on-one trainings and one-on-few trainings are far more successful and effective than one-on-many trainings. We do not provide trainings designed for all staff or large group audiences.
All Professional Development trainings are done onsite at your school. Trainings may be purchased in packages of five or more days. Specific pricing will be provided for customized packages to meet your needs.
