I love the idea of choice boards that Joy mentioned. This past year, I had to give PD on Google Drive and knew there were all different levels of users with Google Drive so I created a choice board (bingo style) that the teachers had to complete. They could move at their own pace, and choose their own 5 squares based on their levels of understanding of Google Drive. When they got a "Bingo" they clicked on the bingo link and had to fill out a google form explaining one thing they learned - and a question they still had - about Google Drive. This gave me the ability afterwards to reach out to teachers to answer their specific questions and sit down with them to go more into depth about Google Drive. This was by far my favorite PD session I did this past year and hope to include more of them this year!
