If you haven’t been introduced to teachillinois.com here is what it’s all about:
TeachIllinois is a brand new, 100% online, center for educator professional development. Educators can either self-register, or districts can bulk register their staffs. Upon completion of the material, learners will complete the ISBE Seminar Evaluation Form, after which, the official ISBE Evidence of Completion form will be made available. All e-learning courses are currently free, although on Friday, May 12, TeachIllinois will start charging a nominal, per PD hour fee. New content is added weekly, and we welcome suggestions for future courses. Our e-learning platform is robust enough that a PD provider (such as a District) could subscribe and create their own ‘channel’.
For questions, please contact Matt Weld, Director of the Area 5 Learning Technology Center: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: If you happened to miss the “STEM, The Illinois Math & Science Grant and How Science Became Cooler than Recess” presentation (which was presented at Granite City High School on March 29th), here’s your chance to view it in its entirety and get an hour of PD. Just create an account, log in and enjoy!
