πŸ’¬ The Essentials of Great PD: How Educators Are Reimagining Professional Learning

Replied to The Essentials of Great PD: How Educators Are Reimagining Professional Learning by an author

Teachers are increasingly turning to online networks to find inspiration and form relationships that build community outside of their school sites. Self-directed social PD is available to teachers when they need it and have time to really invest in their learning. Think of a VLC as a virtual cafe where people congregate and float out their ideas. Those ideas are discussed, refined and then implemented from classroom to classroom in a way that conventional PD is not able to achieve. What social media platforms have taught us is that the learning that works for teachers is more fluid and unstructured.

Interesting read Holly. I am always intrigued by models of professional development. You might be interested in checking out Ian Guest’s research on this topic. His thesis was also recently published.
