Integrating Technology for Active Lifelong Learning (IT4ALL) was founded in 2006 by Dr. Nellie Deutsch and joined by Dr. Ludmila Smirnova in 2009. IT4ALL is a network of educators that provides free and low-cost professional development courses on how to integrate web technologies into full, blended online learning (BOL) courses and the flipped class using WizIQ, Moodle, Google drive, screen casting tools, audio, video, and social networks.

Dr. Nellie Deutsch is internationally known as a relationship-based transformative leader, community builder, an expert in leadership, educational technology, coordinator of online professional development courses, and mentor to educators worldwide. She’s a moderator, researcher, writer, speaker, English language Learning Skills (ELLS) teacher, faculty at Atlantic University Masters of Arts in Transpersonal and leadership studies, leads online and face-to-face conferences, organizes MOOCs, and an online teacher at WizIQ.

Dr. Deutsch follows a relationship-based collaborative active learning approach to instruction and learning. Her experiential humanitarian approach to instruction and learning has earned them the respect of educators around the globe and attracted them to healthy living and healing.

Dr. Deutsch is an accredited PAIRS (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills), conflict resolution, and Reiki practitioner. She practices and teaches Mindfulness Meditation and the Alexander Technique.

Join today's live class on Moodle training with practice in the Moodle Practice Area (MPA): http://www.wiziq.com/online-class/1842689-google-drive-for-collaborative-projects

I added 3 live sessions for the Moodle training on resources, activities (as teachers), and blogs (as managers).
OK. I added these meetings to my MM4 Google Calendar :)

Even though I arrived late and there were technical difficulties--I learned a great deal. I was glad this class was extended a bit and hoped we could CARRY ON for another hour!

I learned so much observing the mastery of presenters that prevailed in the face of a "technical storm". Thank you, Dr. Nellie for helping me to see the bad with the good and learning that IN learning-- it is all good!

By taking this lesson to heart, I will be better prepared for when I take the plunge into online teaching. Thank you so much for creating classes that are genuine and alive with all of the online quirks that can suddenly spring upon us.
