  • During this webinar, participants will be shown how using internet-based, “cloud” applications can empower teachers by allowing for extended communication, sharing, and resources leveraging. Research findings as well as demonstrated applications will highlight the power of e-bookmarking, simplified website development, shared documents, and self-created videos (such as YouTube). Several readily available applications will be shown and tutorials will be provided for participants who wish to explore these helpful tools on their own.
