On-demand PD

Throughout the year I offer live webinars and online courses. The scheduling of those live events doesn’t work for everyone so I also offer some of the webinars and courses in an on-demand format.

A Crash Course in Google Earth & Maps for Social Studies

Google Earth and Google Maps should be staples in the toolbox of anyone who teaches social studies lessons. These are powerful tools that can be used by elementary, middle, and high school students.

This course will teach you how to use Google Earth, Google Maps, and Google My Maps in your classroom. In this crash course I outline five social studies lesson activities that utilize Google Maps and Google Earth to help students make discoveries and to demonstrate what they’ve learned. Click here to get started today!

Nice Things People Have Said About My Webinars

Thank you for a most informative and practical webinar this afternoon. Although I knew many (not all) of the points you were making, the way that you presented them offered new perspectives on how to use the strategies and I felt that your use of examples added to my knowledge base. Although I receive information from FreeTech4Teachers via email, twitter, and Facebook, I have never “attended” one of your webinars. After today, that will change. Thank your for the best hour of my day today! – Barbara O’Berry

Hi Richard, Thanks again for training. I’m starting to feel comfortable with the basics at least and as I continue using the platform, I’m sure I will catch on even quicker. When you get a chance, could I get a certificate of the hours? Thanks, my instructional technology license requires the PD hours. Thanks again, and I’m sure I will be taking another training with you.
Best,
K. O’Leary

I’d take another course from you anytime. You are very knowledgeable, and your experience in the classroom “makes it real.” Thanks so much,
Diana

Again, thank you very much for this wonderful course. I will have to train teachers in the coming year and this will be very useful.It was a very enjoyable experience and I will be on the look for more training opportunities from you.
