How this works...

  1. To make it feasible, you must gather a group of 15 - 30 cutting edge-ucators from your school, district, region, pre-service program, college course, etc.

  2. Check the Calendar for availability.

  3. What you can expect to pay? Things are a little flexible, but a good rule of thumb is to figure the cost at $100 / participant / week. Prices are reduced substantially for the two longer workshops listed above, but the price as well as the content will be worked out to suit your goals and budget. Remember, a group of 15 - 30 participants is required to book a session.

  4. If your goals align with what Tom can offer and the price and timeframe work for you, don't be slow in making Contact with Tom March via edge-ucator.com to co-design your online learning experience.
