Scholarship Opportunity for Fully Accredited Online Courses

I’m excited to announce that on July 5th my two new online courses begin, Methodologies for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and Connected Educators: Harnessing the Power of Social Media for Professional Development. One of the many reasons I enjoy working with the team at Edtechnology Specialists is that the company believes in giving back. These are the charities Edtechnology Specialists supports. In addition, we will also be awarding scholarships to a teacher in need. If you or any teacher you know of could benefit from taking these online courses, then please complete this scholarship application. It shouldn’t take too long to complete. The scholarship can be applied to the July 5th session or the upcoming Fall, Winter, or Spring sessions. I will announce the recipient for the July 5th session soon, but the application can continue to be considered for the upcoming sessions. Below are some more reasons educators will truly benefit from the engaging online accredited courses offered by Edtechnology Specialists and Andrews University.
