EdTechLife.com president Mark Wagner has created a video promotion for the free, online professional development course Classroom Learning 2.0 that is being offered to California teachers through the California Technology Assistance Project Region I. Teachers can start through the "discovery learning" course anytime from February 9 -- June 1. There are 23 "things" for participants to complete. By the end of the course, teachers will have their own blog and avatar, explored YouTube, podcasts, image generators, wikis, mashups, and much more. See CTAP Region 1 Director Peggy Ericson's flyer for directions for how to register for the course.
Among many other roles, Mark is CUEtoYOU professional development coordinator for Computer Using Educators, Inc (CUE), educational technology coordinator for the California League of Middle Schools (CLMS) and California League of High Schools (CLHS), and director of professional development for California Vision Technologies (CVT).
This fun course is an ideal way for teachers and schools to take responsibility for learning the new web tools of the 21st century -- no need to wait for budgets or permissions to learn. Says CSLA 08/09 president Connie Williams, "Classroom Learning 2.0 gives individuals permission to have fun".
