by | Jul 12, 2013
As we continue our journey together, each Friday we'll use this blog to provide a weekly summary of cool resources, hot topics, shared successes, and what's next. It'll be a great way to see what we've been up to at a glance, but will also give you the opportunity to dive in for more details. So, here goes our very first OAC Snapshot:

Professional Development

In addition to relaxing and enjoying summer with family and friends, we know educators are also busy exploring professional development opportunities, learning, and preparing for the upcoming school year. We'd like to know what you've been up to! What workshops or conferences have you attended? What did you learn? Please share your thoughts and event highlights with us in the comments below.
