ARESC staff and member school districts use ESCWeb (ESC Works) to register for professional development at Arkansas River ESC. If you do not have an account or you need your password reset, contact Sandi Metz for assistance. Professional Development is just one service that the Teacher Center at ARESC provides to our school districts.
The Arkansas IDEAS Portal can be used to gain credit for workshops not given at our site. Be sure to check with your district for credit approval before signing up for online workshops. The Arkansas IDEAS website houses thousands of video tutorials that teaches how to use a specific computer program, like Microsoft Excel.
Arkansas now has content on iTunesU! Are you looking for free educational podcasts that can extend learning beyond your classroom? Are you using iPads or iPods in your classroom? Consider building iTunesU courses!
