Welcome to Pearland ISD's Blended Learning Course. We are excited to have you go through this course with us and hope you will apply these principles to your classroom.
This course will be done entirely in an online environment. I would strongly encourage you to have your colleagues sign up for this class to work as your Personal Learning Network(PLN).
Assignments and media connections All assignments will be due by Wednesday of each week. We also invite you to be proactive in your learning and reach out to others. Remember there are: 1) District email-This is the standard form of communication. Every employee should have this and use it. 2) Twitter- My Twitter handle is @RicCMal. You are welcome to engage with me for course direction and other questions. I would also encourage you to use Twitter as means to communicate with learners in the Blended Learning environment worldwide. 3) Skype-Skype would be great to meet with classmates if you are unable to meet in person. 4) Other LMS tools- Depending on which level you teach you will have options of using the Learning Management System assigned to your campus. 5) LinkedIn- You can connect with me at Here. Please also join the Pearland ISD LinkedIn course named: PISD Blended Learning. 6) Google Hangouts- This is a great tool to use
