INFOhio's Be the Helper webinar series has been extended! See additional dates below.
In times of trouble, look for the helpers. This message from Mr. Rogers has never been truer than it is now. As teachers and students adapt to their new routines and systems of education, they will not only need help, but people to support them.
Be the Helper—Support Ohio’s Remote Learning with Quality Content from INFOhio is for INFOhio's IPartners, ICoaches, Providers, and all other education professionals who want to learn how to help support teachers with remote learning. In this series, participants will learn how to be the helpers for remote teaching and learning with INFOhio's digital content. In addition to sharing more about how to use INFOhio resources and tools, we will invite educational experts (that’s you!) to share best practices, observations of what works, and personal anecdotes from your current remote teaching and learning experiences. Each webinar will be held at noon, will last 1 hour, and participants can earn contact hour certificates for attending.
