Don't you just love sitting down to develop a new training from scratch? Isn't it the most pleasant experience? Much like reading a great novel in a warm bath with rose petals falling all around you.
Planning staff development is incredibly time-consuming. I’ve estimated that, for an hour-long workshop, it takes me two weeks of planning. And that's full-time planning! If I've got other responsibilities… forget about it.
And oh the thinking.
It takes so much thinking. My brain turns to mush as I sit there staring at my slides, trying to decide the best order, what's the right amount of information, how to keep things engaging…
The worst part is – a workshop won’t really click until you’ve run it several times, made revisions, and really fine-tuned it! No matter how much I planned, that first time with a new presentation was always a bit… rocky.
And for years, that's all I did! I developed workshops and traveled around, speaking at, literally, hundreds of events.
But the planning never got easier. Each time I started developing a new workshop, it was just as grueling as the first one I ever did.
With all of that said.
Or, even better, would you like someone to just make it for you so you can focus on the 178 other responsibilities you have?
If so, I've added a new membership level at Byrdseed.TV just for you!
See, after my son was born in 2018, I retired from leading workshops to solely develop student lessons Byrdseed.TV. And I'm loving that. But, now I've got dozens of presentations just sitting in a folder on my laptop. Some of them took years of work to develop and fine-tune.
So, I'm taking those old workshops and breaking them up into videos which you can use to lead professional development with your staff.
How does this work?
I’ve created sets of videos, broken into small, five-minute chunks and ending with a clear task.
You pick which videos you'd like to make available to your teachers. They don't even need a Byrdseed.TV account! And they don't even need to be in the same room as you. It can all happen online. You can even check out a demo here.
But… how much?
Well, now, keep in mind, before I retired from leading professional development, folks would pay (including all of the travel costs) over $3,000 a day for me to lead a workshop.
But, for 365 days of access I'm starting this off at just $299 for a year.
What? Why so low!?
- I deeply appreciate folks willing to take a chance on me. So you lock in a nice, low starting price. Yep, you lock it in. I’ve never raised prices on existing Byrdseed.TV subscribers.
- While I've been chugging away at this since Spring, the video library will start small and grow over time. So I’d like to give you a discount as I build out the library.
- It's a wild time in the world, and I'd like to be as helpful to as many folks as I can.
So $299 per year for folks who sign up this summer. And if it doesn’t help you with planning your workshops, I’ll give you all of your money back. No problem at all.
Want to see some samples? Here’s a demo account of what your teachers would see when they log in. I’ve added a few videos for you to check out.
Some frequently asked questions about pricing for this level:
Does the district license come with Administrator accounts? No, a district license is for teacher accounts. An Administrator account would need to be added on.
How many people can log in with an Administrator account? Each Administrator account is for one person to log in with.
I have a Teacher account and want to upgrade to an Administrator account. What will this cost? We’ll credit you what you’ve already paid and prorate the remainder based on how far into your membership you are. Send an email to info@Byrdseed.TV and we’ll calculate this for you!
