Ongoing AISD Professional Development for Distance Learning

AISD has set up this link to house a list of ZOOM professional devlopment meetings. They are mostly done by teachers in the field, sharing their practices with others. Many teachers leave the ZOOM session with access to the exemplar teacher's created content and distance learning systems! The only catch: you have to check the schedule on the link to see when you can join the ZOOM meetings. It doesn't look like there are recordings available afterwards. (Also see 3/30 email from Ms. Mills)
