You'll develop a page that includes a brief synopsis of each event as well as recommendation of 5-8 events centered around a theme.

You'll provide discussion questions and ideas for utilizing the content for other educators. OR What do you Want to Learn? 40% Based on the one thing you want to learn, I'll provide you with one or two people to connect with. Through a process of reading, commenting and searching, you'll build a comprehensive list of resources and ideas that will support you in your quest. Your page will consist of resources, people, videos, etc and a summation of how you connected and found the various content and the degree to which you have achieved what you set out to learn.
