CTL’s Top 5 Professional Development Webinars of 2017

2017 has been a great year for us at CTL, and our Education Partners have only served to make it even better. One of our favorite things here at CTL is the connections and learning we derive from our Professional Development Webinars. Many of these webinars highlight awesome new Google for Education apps, educational software for students and classroom management, and all around awesome solutions for making your life as a teacher, IT professional, or educational administrator even easier.


We know that our education professionals have a busy schedule and finding the time to attend our webinars can be tricky, so we always make every past webinar available on our webinar site: http://ctl.info/webinars/.


As a little wrap-up for 2017, we’ve compiled the most popular webinars from the past year. You can watch these webinars at your leisure. Note that several of these webinars have an accompanying blog so we went ahead and listed those as well.
