I have several teachers who are interested in including online courses in their professional development plans. Neither has actually taken an online course and they are worried about making a financial investment in something they havenâ€™t tried. Is there a way they can â€˜test the watersâ€™ first?
There are a number of reputable Web sites that offer teachers free online workshops. While your teachers wonâ€™t get to experience the interactive features found in a more formal setting, they can get a sense of what itâ€™s like to work online. Here are two Web sites you can recommend:
- Teacher-to-Teacher Workshops
- Concept to Classroom
