    • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: DISTANCE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR EDUCATORS Created by Sheena Williams
    • WHY TEACHERS LOOK FOR PD OPPORTUNITIES?
      • Recertification
      • Individual PD required by state
      • Salary Advancement
      • Updated on Classroom Curriculum
        • Many teachers change grades or subjects
      • Personal interest in advancing learning in their classroom:
        • Getting ideas for classroom activities, labs, & curriculum
        • incorporating technology into the classroom
      • “ Free materials are always good!”
    • HOW ARE THESE PAID FOR?
    • TYPES OF DISTANCE LEARNING Analogous
    • ONLINE SEMINARS & CONFERENCING
      • is used to conduct live meetings, training, or presentations via the Internet.
      • each participant sits at his or her own computer and is connected to other participants via the internet.
      • allows for two or more locations to interact via two-way video and audio transmissions simultaneously.
      • can be collaborative and include polling and question & answer sessions to allow full participation between the audience and the presenter.
      • is a set of interactive telecommunication technologies 
      • 'visual collaboration'
      • type of groupware.
      • downloaded application on each of the attendees' computers or a web-based application
      • sold as a service, hosted on a web server controlled by the vendor.
      From: Wikipedia
    • E-LEARNING
      • Computer and web-based training/learning
      • Offers blended learning services 
      • self-paced learning activities accessible via a computer or handheld device
      • Can include online discussion or other interactive elements
      • easily distributed to a wide audience at a relatively low cost once the initial development is completed.
      From: Wikipedia
    • WEB SEMINAR & CONFERENCING FEATURES
      • Slideshow Presentations
      • Real time audio communication through the computer via use of headphones and speakers
      • Live or Streaming video - where full motion webcam, digital video camera or multi-media files are pushed to the audience
      • Web tours - demonstrating websites where users themselves can also participate.
      • Meeting Recording - where presentation activity is recorded on the client side or server side for later viewing and/or distribution.
      • Whiteboard with annotation (allowing the presenter and/or attendees to highlight or mark items on the slide presentation. Or, simply make notes on a blank whiteboard.)
      • Text chat- For live question and answer sessions, limited to the people connected to the meeting. Text chat may be public (echoed to all participants) or private (between 2 participants).
      • Polls and surveys (allows the presenter to conduct questions with multiple choice answers directed to the audience)
      • Screen sharing/desktop sharing/application sharing (where participants can view anything the presenter currently has shown on their screen. Some screen sharing applications allow for remote desktop control, allowing participants to manipulate the presenters screen, although this is not widely used.
      From: Wikipedia
    • WHAT DO THESE MEAN?
    • TEACHER TESTIMONIALS “ I was able to see new ways of incorporating technology in my classroom as well as making my lessons interactive and more fun.” "This was my first online course. I felt that the discussions were great. In a traditional class I don't get as much independent thought. It opened my eyes to many different ways of thinking about evolution."   “ I Like getting credit online because it is during the time I allot and I can stop and take breaks when I need them and go back. It was more economical, because I didn’t have to drive anywhere.” - Kathy Tuttle, Plymouth OH
