Here is the list NJLA has compiled if you are looking for even more to: https://www.njla.org/shared-resources-to-help-your-residents-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic
It has most of the things I have mentioned above but also resources other states are using.  I didn’t go through all the links to weed out anything that could potentially ask you to pay to watch a webinar… so again, skip those.

Off the beaten path


Nicole is learning to play the ukulele via free lessons with https://www.fender.com/play for possible use in a future story time.

Chris suggested Python Programming: Learn how to code even if you’ve never coded before with these tutorials from Udemy: https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?kw=python&price=price-free&q=python&src=sac

Nicole suggested ASL courses but the class she is taking is full. I found ASL Courses for Free from Gallaudet University: https://www.gallaudet.edu/asl-connect/asl-for-free

 


 

IMPORTANT

Any class/webinar/whatever that you participate in please email me (ssnyder@monroetpl.org) the Title and the amount of time you spent watching or listening to the webinar, podcast or webcast.  If the webinar you watch emails you a certificate please forward that to me.  These are VERY important stats for our State Report and I know everyone here loves to learn and I want to count ALL THE HOURS.

Thank you everyone for all that you do.  Take care!
