edWeb.net is a professional learning community that brings together the widest collaboration of educators and industry professionals in education to provide free professional learning for educators – anytime, anywhere.
edWeb provides a free, open professional learning network for any educator or educational institution to use to share resources and best practices, and work more collaboratively on any project or education initiative.
edWeb harnesses the expertise and support of the widest range of stakeholders and the latest technology to create sustainable online professional learning. We use the power of collaboration to provide high quality PD programs, and to provide those programs for free for all educators – anytime, anywhere.
edWeb hosts professional learning communities and free webinars on topics that can have the most impact on education. This is not traditional one-time “sit and get” PD, but a collaborative, engaging, ongoing experience that online connectivity makes possible. edWeb’s professional learning communities are an ecosystem that provides free live webinars, online discussions, live chats, archived resources, and continuing education certificates.
