Professional Growth Points/July 18, 2015
Introduction to Blended and Online Teaching (iBOT) covered virtual strategies, tools, and best practices for K-12 educators. All content was delivered virtually and content was available asynchronously. Each participant spent up to five hours each week reading, discussing, and creating content specific to the course, and received 40 professional growth points (PGPs) for their efforts. iBOT was initially offered through a strategic partnership between the Indiana Department of Education's Office of eLearning and Five-Star Technology Solutions. The IDOE Office of eLearning purchased a seat for one teacher in every corporation in order to help increase the capacity for teaching digitally in every school system in the state of Indiana.
