French speaking educators can now access the full benefits of the revolutionary eight-chapter training course.
TORONTO, CANADA, May 3, 2010 — Following up on the successful English language market debut of the world’s first teacher-designed, 100% online training course that brings the SMART Board fully to life in every school classroom, Blossom Learning today announced that the same revolutionary eight-chapter online course is now available in a French language version at http://www.blossomlearning.com .
The “Online Applied SMART Board Course” provides teachers and administrators with a simple low cost way to fully maximize their investment in SMART Boards. The 100% Internet based “Online Applied SMART Board Course” is being made available for the precedent-setting price of only US $69.95. What’s more, the eight-chapter step-by-step guide to fully integrate the SMART Board into any classroom environment is hosted by a 21st Century avatar named “Mrs. Blossom,” a composite teacher that every professional educator will immediately relate to.
SMART Boards are truly a world-wide product with successful sales in France and Quebec, Canada, as well as many other French speaking countries. With the launch of the French course the reach of Mrs. Blossom now truly starts to extend into the international marketplace. “We believe that it’s not just English speaking countries that are struggling to integrate classroom technology; it really is an international problem that needs to be addressed. Our French course is the first of many language versions we plan to release. I know Mrs. Blossom is busy right now learning many new languages! Teachers around the world will have access to our training, no matter where they are located or their native language. By delivering our training online we can easily reach remote locations where there’s a lack of trainers. That’s the real power of delivering professional development over the internet!”
With the average cost of a typical face-to-face SMART Board training seminar now hovering around $1500 for a three day equivalent course (not including supply teacher and travel expenses), it’s clear how the US $69.95 priced Blossom Learning “Online Applied SMART Board Course” could radically transform the SMART Board training landscape, particularly for school districts located in remote areas where face-to-face training is rarely available.
The “Online Applied SMART Board Course” comes with built-in LMS administrative facilities that allow school districts to facilitate purchases, allocate courses to teachers, and track individual teacher progress toward completion. Designed by former teachers and AV presentation professionals, the “Online Applied SMART Board Course” integrates 21st century information and animation into an eight chapter course hosted by the teacher avatar Mrs. Blossom. The course allows teachers to complete training on their schedule, which shouldn’t take any more than two to three weeks. However, teachers will be able get up and running with the SMART Board within ten minutes of beginning our course! By the time they are finished, teachers will have progressed sequentially from the Fundamentals level through the Intermediate and Advanced levels, and receive a personalized Certificate of Completion.
