In addition to traditional face-to-face gatherings, the MLTI staff will also be using web-based technologies to communicate and collaborate with educators interested in engaging in conversation around teaching and learning with technology. These WebCast events will provide an opportunity to participate interactively in a live virtual environment, all right from the comfort of your own computer desktop.


Weekly Thursday  Webinars: Offered at both 3:15 pm and 7:15 pm and will be approximately an hour long. Topics will be updated, as well as links to full descriptions, for each WebCast listed below about 2 weeks prior to the event date.

Principal Webinars: These webinars will be offered again this year on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 4:00pm (Schedule may vary due to holidays and school vacations)

Arts Assessment Initiative Webinars: The MLTI and Department of Education will be hosting 5 webinars throughout the 2011-2012 school year on the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative and how it impacts teaching and learning in our schools.  Please join visual art educator Catherine Ring and music educator Rob Westerberg, and guests for the webinar series.  You can read more about these webinars on the Arts Assessment Initiative website.


Guidance and support regarding how to access these opportunities is available at the bottom of this page.

MLTI also offers a variety of other Professional Development events besides webinars.  You can find this information and a form to request customized in-house Professional Development on the MLTI events page.

    I find myself unavailable for both the web conference times today. Are these recorded for podcast or a transcript available as I am currently using scratch a an 8th grade music/animation class for students to develop public service announcements. We have encountered glitches and several questions. Is there a direct contact- possibly the facilitator of the Webnar that I could contact at a later date?

    I hope to burn my student’s projects onto a DVD for further use. Have not attempted that task yet- I’m assuming that will not be difficult.

    Thanks for any help.

    This site is impossible to navigate. I can never find anything. I am looking for archived webinars. They are not under resources. They are not under webinars. Where are they?

  4. November 1st, 2011 at 10:00 | #6

    When you mouse over the Webcasts link on the navigation bar, it will display a submenu with a link to the Archives. Additionally, if you click on the Webcasts link, the resulting page has a link to the Archives a few lines above the schedule of webinars.
