Find out how to take your students anywhere in the world to connect with experts and collaborate with other students- all without leaving your classroom!

And you never know who… or where… we’ll connect! This professional development session costs $149 for CSD members; $189 for non-members. (New Links members, ask how you can take this workshop for free!) Graduate credit is available for those who opt to participate. Register for any tele workshop here.
