Earlier this week, Texas Instruments announced a fall series of free webinars for educators. The series is a part of their T3 program (Teachers Teaching with Technology). The webinars are about an hour long each and are going to be available on demand after their original broadcast. You can get a certificate of attendance that might be applicable towards professional development hours in some states.
Looking at the schedule of T3 Webinars, Texas Instruments continues to make the drive towards moving from the TI-84 platform to the TI-Nspire platform. Of the 11 sessions, 9 focus on the TI-Nspire and only 1 on the TI-84. This isn’t that surprising given that the teachers who are willing to invest the time in learning technology for class also tend to be the ones pushing the envelope towards new technologies.
The complete list of webinars follows. For more information, check out the Texas Instruments webinar site.
