Lisa Schmucki, founder of edWeb.net commented, “We began launching professional learning communities for early learning educators just three years ago, and we’ve been stunned by how enthusiastic these educators are to participate in online professional learning. We’ve been so fortunate to work with sponsoring companies who’ve helped ensure that these are very valuable and collaborative experiences, including Frog Street Press, Gryphon House, Music Together, and Kaplan Early Learning.”
Educators are so appreciative of the opportunity to engage in free professional learning with their peers. Comments like, “O-M-G. I can’t thank you enough. We need this” are expressed by the hundreds of educators who join in edWeb’s early learning webinars each week.
Educators earn a CE certificate for attending a live webinar or viewing the recording on demand. They can participate anytime, anywhere which makes is convenient, and edWeb programs are all free thanks to the support of sponsors.
As we look ahead to 2017, and what we can do to help educators help their students, especially the youngest, it is so inspiring to know that these programs provide a free professional learning opportunity to make a bigger impact in students’ early education.
