'You Say You Want A Revolution' : Teacher Directed Professional Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will showcase how twitter, the Edcamp movement including its online versions like Edcamphome, and entering the blogosphere can empower teachers to take control of their own professional development and build their own professional learning network (PLN). In an age when professional development has truly been democratized, teachers can now gain access to experts in their fields and utilize their professional learning networks to become the master learners that students and schools desperately need. This session will begin with a synopsis of one teacher's journey and the impact self-directed professional development has had on her teaching and her students. The session will then provide attendees with a variety of different resources that will enable them to create their own professional learning network.
