Teachers just like you are doing amazing things through distance learning, providing their students experiences that are far beyond what’s possible in the classroom.
The EducationPlus Distance Learning Academy will equip you with the knowledge and tools to make amazing experiences come to life for your students! St. Louis area teachers have connected their students to the rainforests of Borneo and to the underwater wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Where will you take your students?
In the three day academy this summer, you’ll learn about e-learning, online projects and videoconferencing using tools like Polycom, Cisco, Skype, Google and LifeSize. You’ll also learn how to effectively use other collaborative technologies such as Google Docs, blogs and wikis. As you collaboratively work on projects over distance learning you’ll develop a Personal Learning Network that will be valuable in your teaching.
