We love to learn and grow, and we know that the teachers and course developers we work with love to learn and grow as well. One of our favorite places to learn and grow is in our individual Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) consisting of edchats, webinars, podcasts, and more. Through our participation at various events such as ISTE and local edcamps, we’ve come to personally meet many of the educators that use boclips in the classroom and as instructional technology coaches. Recently, we had the opportunity to coordinate with Edchat Interactive and Mitch Weisburgh and allow some of our boPROs that we’ve had the honor of working with share their use of boclips. We’d love to share the recorded sessions with you from Suzy Lolleyand Dave Blanchard.
