Cool Tools for Schools 2013/14 – Interested?

evaluationI’ve had several requests to run another round of the Cool Tools for Schools project starting in October 2013.  It would be great to get a few more BOCES SLS regions involved as well.

If you’re not familiar with the project, it’s an online learning program based on the original 23 Things  Learning 2.0 program developed by Helene Blowers. Participants read through an online lesson, explore tools and examples, then do a learning activity to gain experience with the tools covered in each lesson.

Goals for the program are:

  • Gain familiarity with a variety of technology tools and explore how they can be used in K12 settings.
  • Opportunities to make connections with other educators and develop collaborations.
  • Increased confidence in exploring technology tools.

The two Cool Tools programs that have just finished running are:

Past Programs:

If you want to hear more about whether the program was valuable to the participants, the SLS Directors of the participating regions will be happy to share their experience with you.

And I’ll be happy to provide you with additional information about fees and how the programs are structured.

    Hi Pollly,

    You can include Dutchess SLS!

    BTW – I hear that Google Reader is going away in July. Do you have an alternative RSS reader to suggest?
