Optional Gathering for Professional Development to Work on Unit One Course Work


There will be cake and coffee/tea.

Where: K-1-1 & K-1-2
When: 3-5 pm (This will problably NOT take the entire 2 hours.)
Description: Optional gathering of any NPCFF members to work on initial stages of the 30 hours of professional development. The purpose for doing so is to:

1. Complete the Personal Information Sheet.
2. Complete the Orientation
3. Complete the Course Work for Unit One that leads up to the Sync Point One Discussion.

Please note that these items can be covered on your own via the internet, but we are gathering to do them in team fashion for moral and technical support.

When you are ready to begin the online learning course, click here to log into your online learning account at the Embedded Learning account site site. Follow the procedure below.

Opening Procedure

1. After you logon to your account at Embedded Learning, you will click the Learn link. Click the Launch Course link and complete the Personal Information sheet.

2. Click the Orientation Link and proceed through the Orientation. You must complete the Orientation in one sitting and there is apparently a short quiz at the end (Thanks, Shetts, for informing people about this via discussion http://npcff.wikispaces.com/message/view/Important+Dates/1882477 )

3. In Unit One, you will encounter a button on the screen that says Print. This is a misnomer. Clicking the button will not actually print, it will open the document in a new window to print. Keep in mind that you have the document in your blue binder from Annie on the 16th. Clicking Print, however, will allow you to bring it up on the screen for you to view.

4. Once the course work for Unit One begins (this is separate from the orientation), if you click the Exit button you will have your place in the course bookmarked and can return in the future. If you click top right x to close the window, it will necessiate that you start over. (I am pretty sure. If anyone finds information that contradicts this, please contact vizzata@npenn.org.)
