"I believe My eCoach will help me find the answer to getting online professional development for technology in the hands of teachers. I am using the survey to create online signups for my Wednesday Workshops after school. When I discovered the Lesson Plan project template, I decided to use it as a way to walk teachers through training online, where they can access everything I have to offer in the afternoon workshops. Now they can do it on their own time and at their own pace."
