How useful are edWeb webinars?

EdWeb webinars are described by my friends as some of the best forums for exchanging education ideas. But there are so many other similar organizations coming up with such claims these days. So what are these webinars all about, and how useful are they? Perhaps you could explain to me if there are any free webinars on education out there. If there are, then how effective are they? Please tell me what is this whole ed web thing about?

You sound pretty skeptical about the webinars by edweb. That is understandable since as you say there are several websites offering questionable webinars on education. However, I would like to assure you that edweb offers some of the most reliable education webinars on the internet. It is a professional network of highly qualified and innovative educators. You can gain from the webinars.

  1. The webinars are free so you don’t have to pay. You will thus attend as many webinars as you wish, without spending a cent. This means that it is not a money minting scam of any sort. All the programs are supported by sponsors, whose main interest is to improve the development of education.
  2. The webinars have been organized for 10 years, and the organization has gained a community of over 500,000 members. These include teachers, librarians and administrators. It is quite useful to learn from such a large pool of professionals.
  3. The organizers have gained a lot of experience and professionalism in carrying out the webinars. This has resulted in well-organized events that run right on schedule. You will thus not have to waste any time. Moreover, the content of the webinars is focused on the education, thus enabling you to gain as much knowledge on the subject as possible.
  4. The topics on offer include school administration, subject teaching, delivery tools, co-curricular activities, classroom activities, discipline management, security for students, technology applications, skill development and talent nurturing. This is not teacher education all over again. Instead, it is a constant update on the latest emerging issues in the field.
  5. You can also join one of the professional learning communities. These are smaller groups dedicated to specific topical areas. There are very many of them, so you can join quite a number. It all depends on your areas of particular interest. Teachers in neighboring schools, for instance, can network through these communities, and organize joint activities for their students. Many science fairs, sports days, and other such activities, have been organized over this forum. The educators themselves also get to hold focused discussions in their area of interest, through these communities. The result is that all are able to improve their practice, which ultimately results in better education delivery.

EdWeb webinars are a great way for educators of all kinds to improve their trade, at no personal cost. I have attended so many of these webinars, yet I gain something new each time. The professional learning communities are great as well. The exchange of ideas that occurs here has greatly improved my performance, both as a teacher and an administrator. Moreover, I have made some pretty important contacts along the way. It is also important to point out that you don’t just share ideas within your country. There are many members who come from other countries as well. This enables members to compare notes on how education is conducted in foreign countries. It enriches the ideas of any educator who is focused on being more efficient and achieving better academic results. It is also one of the leading places to learn about the latest innovation in the education sector.
