SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The development of the internet and social networking in the 21st century has changed the way in which students learn, and potentially the way in which teachers teach. The internet, iPad, and phone apps have opened up a vast resource of possibilities to more effectively engage our students in the learning process – to greatly enhance their classroom experience and to enable them to generate their own learning beyond the classroom. This course is designed to familiarize teachers with online tools, skills, and methodologies that can empower them to teach online or to utilize online tools to maximize learning in their classrooms.

Part I –  4 weeks: Learn skills and methodologies for user-friendly collaborative, synchronous and asynchronous tools, including: mindmapping, online bulletin boards, Google Drive, audio tools, Learning Management Systems, and more.

Part II – 4 weeks: Learn skills and methodologies for user-friendly interactive video tools. Maximize Using YouTube, drawing tools, online games, and animations. This portion of the course also includes a practicum in which participants present their own online lessons for peer review.

Continuing Education Credits: Certificates of eight hours of Continuing Education Credits from the State of New Jersey through YAHAD (National Jewish Council for Disabilities) for participants in 8-week course only

All of the sessions are recorded and the recordings will be available for 1 year following the end of the course
