Enrollment is Open for Spring Classes on The Eighth Floor

Yep.  It's true.  
You can enroll for spring classes.  All the information you need is on our website. .  

You will find a list of our classes with times and dates here  and a PDF of our soon to be printed schedule here

Here are some new things for spring: 
  • SOL Training!  Synchronous Online Learning . . . Training. (Don Cornelius would be proud!)  These are short classes on hot topics held online - lasting about 30 minutes or so. If nothing else, the entertainment value of watching us fumble through the first few of these sessions will be worth the time. Just sayin'. 
  • More classes after school/evenings and weekends
  • We have moved 3 of our regular F2F classes online: Social Networking Tools for Educators, Time Management Tools, and Differentiated Learning. 
  • New class - next level of Tech integration with the Common Core Standards - classroom application
  • This is not new, but so many people don't know that you can take as many classes as you like at no charge to you personally. 

FYI - We will be closed for the holiday Dec 21 - Jan 7th.  If you enroll in a class, you will get a confirmation after Jan 7th. 

If you know what you want to take, we recommend you enroll early to ensure a spot. Did you know that The Eighth Floor has approximately 70 consortium members? Teachers alone, we have over 13,000 members - not even including support staff, part-time instructors, and administrators.  Crazy stupid numbers.  

Is anyone else just a little concerned that Scott, Linda, and I are influencing that many people, that are influencing that many more people? Just gonna leave you with that thought.

Best wishes from The Eighth Floor and a peaceful holiday season.
