We are always seeking to continually develop better professional development opportunities based on your feedback. As you may know, we rolled out a new learning management system for online PD based on your thoughts about what was working and what wasn’t. Your feedback has been so critical, and we thank you for voicing your needs and concerns. We listened and are excited to announce a new and updated NextThought platform for all your online learning.
If you haven’t created an account on our NextThought platform, you can visit opsrc.net/login to access videos and instructions on creating your account and enrolling in all our course offerings.
If you have created an account on our OPSRC NextThought platform, your username and password will be the same. When you log in, you will notice some course pathways, specifically for support and certified personnel, as well as optional courses. If you completed a course in NextThought prior to March 25, 2019, we have kept track of your course completions and certificates. If you need any documentation, please submit a help desk ticket.
We hope you will like all of the new functions--you'll now have access to a chat feature, discussion board and sharing options that allow you to connect with other educators across the state. Distance is no longer a barrier for you to collaborate and share best practices!
A collection of Oklahoma education-related news of the week.
There are quite a few different projections about next year’s State Aid budget, and some of the projections are relatively positive. We have tried to substantiate any kind of positive news about a guaranteed budget deal that will hold education harmless, but as far as we can tell there is no guarantee that this will happen.
When I was little, my dad spent time working at McDonnell Douglas in Tulsa. If I remember right, he worked on a lot of different things, but what always excited me the most was that he worked on the engine for the F-15 Eagle fighter jet.
Two weeks! Just two weeks until that long-anticipated Winter Break you and your students so deserve: Joy to the World! We sincerely hope you’ll have some Silent Nights in store.
