Online Professional Development

You asked for it. And we listened. Mrs. Blossom’s comprehensive “Online Applied SMART Board Course” - from Beginner to Advanced - is by far the most important evolution of classroom technology since the creation of the SMART Board itself. This professional development course designed by Blossom Learning in partnership with Advanced Education will change the way teachers learn how to use a SMART Board in their classrooms.

Comprehensive from Beginner to Advanced

Make no mistake. This is a fully comprehensive course that consists of 8 chapters. After each chapter you will be provided with a set of review questions in which you must receive 80% or higher to progress onto the following chapter. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a personalized certificate to prove that you have received extensive training on the SMART Board. Compared with traditional 1 day ‘face to face’ SMART Board courses, Mrs. Blossom’s “Online Applied SMART Board Course” is effectively 3 full days of course work. The course covers topics and applications from “Fundamentals” through “Intermediate” level right up to comprehensive “Advanced” SMART Board lesson plans.

Affordable, Convenient and Easy to Use.

Have we mentioned affordable yet? Teachers and Administrators have told us time and again that classroom time is precious. Leaving a class for each day entails organizing supply teachers; traveling; catch up time for teachers and students not to mention the costs entailed (on average over $1500). The "Online Applied SMART Board Course" was developed to be within the reach of even the most budget conscious school. And you don't even need to leave your classroom.

Learn at your Own Pace and Time

You will be able to take the course at your own pace and in your own time and go back and review the course material as many times as you feel necessary. After every chapter you will receive a knowledge check that consists of a series of questions and also have the ability to download the examples Mrs. Blossom uses throughout the chapter (Mrs. Blossom’s Homework!) And because the course is designed to be taken at your own pace, you will be able to spend a lot more time on examples than would be possible in a real time classroom environment. Blossom Learning’s panel of experts have determined that the course content is equivalent to at least 3 full days of 'face to face' courses + 1 full day of practice work.

Designed by Teachers Using Real Classroom Examples

Mrs. Blossom’s Online Applied SMART Board Course was created with professional advice and support of a team of education consultants, all SMART Certified Trainers with vast teaching experience. Advanced is proud to be part of this team. The course applies the tools learnt to real examples so that you can then use the SMART Board more effectively in a classroom setting. The inclusion and use of Mrs. Blossom as well as the course platform used separates this course from any other available.
