Today, I had the pleasure of presenting at Edscape 2011. The title of my session was Spontaneous Professional Development. You most likely have heard this term before as it is used pretty frequently these days.
Here’s the description of the session:
There are a plethora of FREE Web2.0 resources for bringing professional development to the educators in your district. Archived webinars can be viewed at home in your pajamas or with your PLC (professional learning community) as part of a district meeting. Using archived and live Blackboard Elluminate (desktop video conferencing) sessions from presentations all over the world, harness the power of your network to virtually keep learning.
Here are the opportunities I spoke about:
2011 Library Worldwide Virtual Conference
FETC 2011 Fall Virtual Conference
The Future of Education
iEarn online courses
The DEN Fall Virtual Conference 2011
Classroom 2.0 Live
Edutopia on iTunes
Youtube: Apps Edu Certified Trainer Channel
Ed Tech Talk
There are countless others, but I only had 50 minutes. Please share links to opportunities for professional development as a comment if you would like to add to the list.
