Leveraging Technology to Reach All Learners - Online Professional Learning Program

 

Welcome to the EdTechTeacher “Leveraging Technology to Reach All Learners” Online Professional Learning Program! EdTechTeacher is proud to offer its internationally renowned professional development services in an online, learn-from-anywhere format. Through the “Leveraging Technology to Reach All Learners” Online Learning Program, participants will take part in rich and immersive courses built to meet the needs of teachers on any part of an educational technology journey.

Each EdTechTeacher “Leveraging Technology to Reach All Learners” course will consist of four synchronous mini-workshops facilitated by an EdTechTeacher Instructor.  These mini-workshops are an integral part of the learning experience, as participants can interact and ask questions directly with their instructor on a weekly basis, offering a unique online learning environment.  While participation in the mini-workshops is not a requirement for participants, it is strongly encouraged.

Program Details

4 Instructor Lead Mini-Workshops

Over the course of four weeks, participants are invited to participate in a weekly live, instructor-led “mini-workshop”.  One night each week, EdTechTeacher instructors will lead a Google Hangout in which participants are invited to join and ask questions and will focus on content in the upcoming week’s module. These workshops will begin at 8pm Eastern Time to allow participants from all time zones to join and participate. The mini-workshops will also be recorded so that participants unable to attend a particular mini-workshop may watch it at a later date.

4 Online Learning Modules

After each mini-workshop, participants will complete an online module directly related to the topic of the online learning course. These modules will take on average two hours to complete and will be facilitated through EdTechTeacher’s online course system. The online work will also include a discussion forum that allows participants to engage in a discussion with an EdTechTeacher instructor and other members of the course, helping creating a community of learners.

Graduate Credit Available

One graduate credit will be available for most courses through Framingham State University at a cost of $75.
