Know the Way, Show the Way, Go the Way, & Grow Each Day

This book club will help you take concrete steps while learning with educators all across the state, with PGPs for those who complete it. The club will be over the course of six weeks; a prompt or question will be posted in the blog every Monday morning. That blog post will also include the reading assignment for the following week. You can learn more and join here. PLUS, new this summer, you can join a Voxer group to discuss it! (Contact me if you'd like to join the Voxer group.)

Scheduling Open for Service Learning Trainings for 2018-19

Consultant Beth Smith and genOn field reps have started to schedule introductory trainings around the state for the 2018-2019 school year. If your school or district would be interested in more information about these free PD opportunities at a faculty meeting, PLC time, or PD days before or during the 2018-2019 school year, contact Joan Belschwender or one of the team. Summer is also a good time to examine the many resources available from Learning to Give and generationOn, with links on our website. You may also see the team presenting at some of the Summer of eLearning conferences around the state this summer.
