Anytime, Anywhere Professional Development


Danielle Klaus - March 21, 2012

PREMISE: Professional Development is expanding. "Lifelong Learning" is evolving. We need to become our own first-class teachers, leveraging networked learning and online resources, collaborating and creating together globally... and we must model these practices for our students.

“YOU HAVE 90 MINUTES. FIGURE IT OUT.”
- PD for Teachers (Like Students Do It) (Will Richardson / Weblogg-ed)

"You will always be a beginner. Get good at it."
- Achieving Techno-Literacy (Kevin Kelly / NY Times)

“Is everything O.K.?” I asked.
“It’s hard,” he said. “I not only have to be the student, I also have to be the teacher.”
“Yes! So what have you learned about being a teacher?”
“You have to teach the student — that’s me — not only to learn stuff but to learn how to learn.”
- Achieving Techno-Literacy (Kevin Kelly / NY Times)
