Throughout the summer I am pleased to offer a variety of online learning opportunities for teachers and school administrators. All of my online courses are conducted as live, interactive webinars. But if you cannot attend the live sessions, you can watch the recordings on a schedule that works for you. This summer I’m offering five online courses for teachers and school administrators. Those are Getting Going With G Suite, Teaching History With Technology, Blogs & Social Media for Teachers, Practical Ed Tech Jumpstart, and From Blog to Job – A Teacherpreneur Jumpstart.
