Monday Message: May 23, 2011

Happy Monday, all! May seems to be chugging along at a quick pace. That can be good or bad, depending on whether your school year is over or about to end. Either way, things are always happening here at eMINTS…

If you are in Missouri and your district is planning on sending new or replacement Year 1 Comprehensive eMINTS teachers, eMINTS4All teachers or Professional Development for Educational Technology Specialists (PD4ETS) participants to training provided by eMINTS staff, please register those participants at: http://www.emints.org/services/adduserprogram.php by May 31.

Missouri District-level eMINTS Instructional Specialists: Please use the same link to register any new Year 1 Comprehensive eMINTS or eMINTS4All teachers that you will be training as well by May 31. Please also register teachers who are continuing  from Year 1 into Year 2 next school year. This will ensure that we provide access to eMINTS materials and Moodle space (pending approved schedules) to  your teachers.

eMINTS program participants in other states will receive instructions about how to register new Year 1 teachers and continuing Year 2 teachers in the next several weeks.

Please call the eMINTS office at 573-884-7202 with any questions.
