NETS Leadership Academy in Spanish
One of ISTE’s most popular online courses, the NETS
Leadership Academy (NLA), will be offered in Spanish
beginning February 25. The courses that make up the
NLA series—Foundations, Deep Dive, and Leadership
& Advocacy—are six-week facilitated classes steeped in
the NETS. Educators from Latin America will facilitate
the courses using examples from the region and demonstrations of the NETS in action.
The NLA gives participants access to NETS experts, relevant resources, and activities to implement in their schools
One past participant said the
strengths of the NLA were “…the
integration of NETS theory, social
media, case study, and best practice
examples—a product-based con-
structivist learning approach.”

course, visit iste.org/OnlineCourses.
