Discovering World Book

We are living in a digital world and this course will provide information and resources that you and your students can utilize. Digital learning boosts students’ achievement, engagement and is vital to the modernization of school curriculums and long term success. The next generation classroom allows everyone to thrive on devices that create a richer learning experience. World Book Online is a suite of online research tools that includes encyclopedia articles, primary source collections, educator tools, student activities, pictures, audio, and video, complemented by current periodicals and related websites. Evangeline Parish utilizes REAP funds to purchase World Book online for all classrooms. This is a five week online course conducted entirely via the MOODLE site that will begin January 4, 2016 and continue through February 5, 2016. This five week course will provide professional development on using various resources offered through World Book. All posted assignments and forum assignments will be due online in the week they are assigned unless you make other arrangements with the instructor since dialogue is a vital part to the success of this online class. Any printable assignments are due to the Central Office by February 17, 2016 by 4 o’clock. Internet Access from home is required for this course. No stipend will be paid but 15 CLUs and 15 technology points will be awarded upon successful completion of the course.
