As educators, we strive to integrate technology into our instruction every day. But how often are we actually learning in an online setting? Now, we invite you to be a professional online learner and participate in SCCOE’s Professional Innovation Pathways. Each course and academy focuses on a unique digital theme, relevant research, and best practices of digital learning.
What can our students teach us and each other about the world around them? In this academy, we will practice strategies to grow your network and connect students beyond the four walls of your classroom. Using interactive websites and tools, you will experience the magic of collaborating online and offer your students opportunities to do the same.
You have considered the impact of global citizenship on both you and your students, and you have started (or continued) to grow your PLN to connect and learn.

You have successfully participated in a global learning experience as an independent learner. You have taught a global learning lesson to your students and captured the lesson in a creative, digital way. Also, you have reflected on your next steps with this line of inquiry and learning.
