A Message from Jim Kearns, Collaborative Executive Director

Welcome to the Salem State Collaborative Project Website. We at the collaborative are working hard to provide our member districts with high quality, low cost professional development. The Collaborative Project was first created to provide professional development in Mathematics and Science. We now provide professional development in all content areas from K-12. We need the support of our membership in developing a cadre of professional development providers/presenters. If you are interested in presenting or if you can recommend someone else, please contact me at

This year we will continue to offer our Technology and Common Core Monday Sharing conferences. Each conference will offer ten or more 2-hour workshops on a major topic addressing a technology skill or a strategy in addressing the Common Core. The collaborative will continue to offer online workshops throughout the year. The instructors will use Moodle, Edmodo or Google for Educators as the backbone of these online workshops giving you the opportunity to learn an additional skill that you may use with your students.

A new program offering this year is our Saturday morning workshops. Many of our participants have asked for this feature. The workshops will meet for 3 to 4 hours and some may have an online component as well. The Saturday workshops will be held at the SEEM Collaborative Office in Stoneham which is centrally located for many of our districts.

Our current workshop offerings are on our workshop page and are updated on a regular basis. If you are having difficulty in registering for your workshop, please email me with the course information and I will register you. If you need to cancel your registration, please do so at least two to three days prior to the workshop.

Please check our membership list to determine the fee for each workshop. Please bring the appropriate fee in the form of a check made out to Salem State or a PO to the first session of a workshop series or the day of the full day workshop.

Thank you for your continued support,

Jim Kearns

Executive Director
