World of Spies: A Free, Age-Appropriate Online Enrichment Program
Limited Capacity seats available

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are free courses that can be used to provide supplemental or stand-alone educational experiences. They can be used as enrichment opportunities to challenge students or as a way to deepen learning on a classroom topic. They are also a way to collaborate across age and geographical limitations. "World of Spies" is a MOOC that can be used with students in grades 6-12 and adapted to use with younger students in a classroom setting. I will provide information about how you could use this and other MOOCs in your classroom, and we will discuss as a group how we can use these free courses to benefit ourselves and the students we serve.
