How to tell teachers about online courses

  1. 1. These slides contain dialogue and other instruction you can use when speaking to educators about our courses Thepaperlessclassroom.com
  2. 2. “Hello, I am (your name), and I work with The Paperless Classroom, online courses for educators. Do you think you will be taking any courses or professional development this year?” Most will say yes or that they are not sure. If it’s a flat No, you can move on or try to get more from them. For example, you might say, “Oh, so you have all the hours you need then?”
  3. 3. For those who say Yes, which will be most, continue this way: “The Paperless Classroom online courses are created by Mark Barnes, a former teacher and renowned author and international presenter. Mark’s courses help educators learn how to use classroom websites, mobile devices, social media and web tools for any grade or subject. We even offer a 3-semester hour course on using Twitter both in and out of the classroom. Mark’s courses are really popular and, best of all, they are self-pacing and taught with easy to use how-to video and online communication.”
  4. 4. Be sure you provide the website (use a business card with only the address, www.thepaperlessclassroom, and something like “online courses for educators”). If there is a computer handy, or you have your own Internet-ready device, pull up the site to show teachers. Next say: “Unless you have questions, I don’t want to take too much of your time. But, hey, why don’t you give me your name and check out our website, thepaperlessclassroom.com, to learn more about all of our powerful 3-semester hour courses. I’ll add you to our list of possible enrollees, and we’ll be on the lookout for your registration. Don’t worry, I don’t need your email or phone number; we don’t contact people, unless they register. We just like to have names of interested people, so we can watch for them, when the college sends us new registrations.
  5. 5. “Don’t forget to go to thepaperlessclassroom.com. You can register online in about 5 minutes or you can call to register. Be sure to ask for one of Mark Barnes’ courses; in fact, the course titles and ID numbers are on the registration page, so it’s really simple. Remember, courses are 9 weeks, but you’ll probably finish in 2-3, so you can register today and start anytime before the course ends. Don’t wait too long though.”
  6. 6. The FAQ page on thepaperlessclassroom.com covers most questions. Here are few important facts you should know, though: --Transcripts or accreditation questions: Course hours are provided through Lake Erie College, which is accredited in all 50 states. Transcripts are sent a few weeks after you complete the course. --What if I’m not good with computers? No problem, Mark will walk you through every step. He’ll make sure you learn. Check out the testimonials at thepaperlessclassroom.com. --What if I teach elementary? Many kindergarten and Pre-K teachers have taken our courses. They fit all ages and subject areas. --I need two courses: Fantastic! Many teachers take two and even three courses at the same time. You can earn 9 semester hours in one semester! --I need hours, but I’m too busy now: With the 9-week completion window, you can register now and start later; plus, our courses are offered all.
