HOW DOES IT WORK?

The program will run from November 2017 through May/June 2018. Once again this year, we'll be offering over 40 different lessons to choose from. You get to choose which lessons you want to complete, which makes this a truly personalized learning opportunity.

~Cool Tools 101 (Things 1 to 10) will be for folks who haven't participated in this (or similar) project before.

~More Cool Tools (Things 11 and beyond) are for those who have participated in the past and are looking for new topics to explore.

Some examples of topics include: Blogging, Screencasting, News Literacy, Infographics, Photo Fun, Digital Citizenship, Augmented Reality and more. This year, we'll be using Google Classroom for the workshop. You'll receive an invitation to join the course site after you register.
