Professional Development Workshops this Summer at WizIQ

Professional Development Workshops this Summer at WizIQ | WizIQ Live Online Classroom | Scoop.it

The summer is a perfect time for teachers to learn and connect with other educators from around the world. However, teachers may find the travel and expense of taking professional development programs unappealing. It makes little sense to turn a holiday into work. However, with the Internet, I no longer need to travel and spend much money on professional development programs. I take and give courses online at WizIQ. WizIQ live classes are a great way to teach and learn. Teaching is the perfect way to learn. I teach so I can learn and I teach my students how to teach so they can learn more effectively.
