8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought | Future Ready School Libraries | Scoop.it

"The idea here isn’t simply that educators can improve by connected through social networks–they already are doing that. Rather, that schools can decentralize the teacher training effort by cutting them loose and supporting their self-directed efforts through an array of resources. The purpose of this post, beyond clarifying some how social media-driven and self-directed teacher professional development might work, is to offer some (mostly) concrete ideas for actually getting started designing such a program in your school or district. We would love to hear any suggestions in the comments because, well, that’d be social of you."

The role of librarians when it comes to helping their patrons negotiate and assess the information that comes from those sources varies greatly depending upon your community, your library, your job. That role, to provide media and digital literacy in a constantly changing world, demands more than ever that we share what we learn and our own expertise. Towards that end, ALSC’s Intellectual Freedom Committee partnered with AASL to host a joint Community Forum on Digital Literacy/Digital Citizenship.  If you missed the forum you can access the transcript here or focus your attention on the media literacy section of the ALSC Post-Election Resource.   Here ar
