Great Resources for Colorado Teachers @ eNetColorado

Did you know that as a Colorado educator, you have a terrific FREE professional development and resource library available to you?  It’s called eNetColorado (www.enetcolorado.org).  eNet was started as part of a CDE grant through Title IID to help build 21st Century technology rich classrooms. This grant, and others received since, help provide EVERY teacher in the state of Colorado with a free account.  With this account teachers have access to 4 resource areas: Professional Development, Digital Resource Exchange and Marketplace (DREAM), Colorado iTunes U, and Adobe Connect Video Conferencing.  The professional developments include the popular Intel Teach series and the Verizon Foundation’s Thinkfinity site.  Courses are offered in face-to-face, blended, and online formats, and cost $50-$75.  30 CDE credits are offered upon completion of each course, with college credit from Adams State College also available. The DREAM site provides teachers with digital classroom content for all grade levels and subject areas from a single search interface. Every resource is aligned with Colorado State Standards.  Teachers can also create classes within the DREAM site and assign content to students.  The DREAM site then tracks student progress through the assignments, saving the teacher time. Through eNetColorado and DREAM, teachers can also quickly access all the content from the Colorado iTunes U. The final resource is video conferencing through Adobe Connect.  Classrooms can connect to speakers, experts, and other students from around the world with no expensive equipment to purchase. This feature costs $100 for a full year subscription. If you haven’t already, please sign up for your free account and start exploring the wealth of standards-based resources that have been made available.
