Making Connections for National Distance Learning Week
Have you ever taken an online course before? Or tuned-in to an educational TV show? Have you ever watched a webinar or videoconference? Or listened to a podcast? Well you’ve taken part in one of many distance learning opportunities available across the globe today. Well, it’s ripe time to celebrate because November 7-11 is National Distance Learning week, sponsored by the National Distance Learning Association.
As a national museum, we share the stories of WWII with audiences across the country. Our distance learning programs are perfect options to reach eager learners nationally.
No need for a school bus, we offer 10 Virtual Field Trips for students across the country (Life long learners too!).Topics range from D-Day to Iwo Jima, from Victory Gardens to primary sources in research papers. Get more information on our Virtual Field Trip programs. We also offer virtual professional development workshops to prepare teachers in presenting WWII curricula.
Currently we’re busy working on a FREE webinar to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 2011. So far, nearly 100 schools signed up to connect with us on this historic day. Sign up here for the Pearl Harbor webinar.
Another way the museum reaches out to students nationally is through Operation Footlocker, our traveling artifact trunks, filled with actual WWII objects from the museum. Reserve an artifact trunk today.
Whether you live around the corner or across the country from the museum, connecting with us is easier than you think!
