BRINGING ONLINE LEARNING TO YOUR SCHOOL

Online Learning opportunities are growing rapidly. With so many options, where do you begin? The purpose of this workshop is to examine different delivery formats and familiarization of the terms used while bridging past learning experiences to current opportunities. Connections can be made enabling the participant to either build an individual plan to continue their own educational journey or develop a school wide implementation plan for the grade 9-14 learners at their location. This workshop does not endorse any one vendor, since once size does not fit all. Instead participants will increase their knowledge level so they can make an educated choice to meet the unique needs at their location.
