Video Lessons You Can Share and/or Sell
Online and blended instruction enhances learning for most students, if not all, but it can also enhance teachers' professional development, instruction, and finances. "Video Lessons You Can Share and/or Sell" will show teachers how to create 21st century lessons that can also supplement their finances.

But what do you do when the students don't watch the lecture? This training will provide you with the knowledge, skills and tools to carry out successful blended or flipped lessons and classes.

The World (and your classroom) Can Be Saved Through Design
The delivery of education doesn’t have to be ugly. Even Kanye said, “The world can be saved through design.” With a little creativity, everything you touch in the classroom can be dynamic and make an impact. If you view your classroom and lessons through a designer’s lens, things change. Creativity and the designer’s eye take focus on the look and feel of the lesson, as well as impact on the end user: your customer, the student.

Learn how to make your presentations pop and your graphic designs go from amateur to pro. This session will focus on the impact of design in every classroom and lesson, as well as many popular tools that anyone can use to make a difference with design.
