We’ve appreciated and advertised the many hour-long webinars provided by edWeb.net, ADDitudemag.com, and other organizations, which are detailed in Special Ed Tech’s “Level Up” column. But until now we’ve overlooked an important set of online courses which are also available.
Published by the Kent Intermediate School District, the five-hour courses offer a wide range of topics for teachers, including computer basics (digital literacy for educators), project-based learning, flipped instruction, common core, STEM, guided instruction, assessments, and more. The courses are free or low-cost, are worth SCECH credits, and can be taken at any time, as long as they are completed by June 30, 2016. Michigan residents living near Grand Rapids will appreciate in-person courses which are also offered.
