@Whittttt basically I’m recommending a PD plan to help your teachers gain positive experiences in an online course, to get ideas 4 their own

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt since MOOCs are free & open, it can provide a good forum to do that, esp if you find 1 with engaging curriculum

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt …together, & provide face-to-face opportunities for the teachers to share their observations & learning with each other

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt most K12 classroom teachers don’t have much experience either taking or teaching online classes… so it’s a gr8 idea to take 1…

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt I think VERY highly of @JSW_EdTech who works with them now - he is honest & visionary. gr8 person to collaborate with!

@Whittttt if you have teachers that are going to start using a LMS like Moodle, you might join a MOOC together & treat it like a book study

via Buffer

@Whittttt Every school needs some kind of learning management system, but also spaces for teachers & students to publish publicly online

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt Have you participated in any MOOCs yet? I recommended that get more ideas on how online activities can be designed

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt The effectiveness of any LMS including Moodle depends on how activities are designed for students

via HootSuite in reply to Whittttt

@Whittttt Moodle is comparatively a very good learning management system, but like anything else it can be used well or poorly
