20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.

CECI Jean-François's curator insight, April 26, 3:13 AM

20 scénarios d'accompagnement au développement professionnel de l'enseignant. Des idées très intéressantes et moins documentées y figurent ...

Gilles Le Page's curator insight, April 27, 3:20 AM

c'est en anglais, pas vraiment génial, mais certaines pistes sont bonnes ...

Exemples (traduction libre) :

 

La Conférence virtuelle - Construite sur ​​l'idée de la conférence traditionnelle, ce type de conférence nécessite un dispositif et une connexion Internet. Une conf. virtuelle peut inclure des présentateurs et des participants de partout dans le monde, ils sont souvent peu coûteux ou gratuits, et donnent accès aux idées étonnantes d'autres écoles ou éducateurs. 

Avantage supplémentaire : la plupart des sessions sont enregistrées, et peuvent être partagées avec des collègues. 

Un des meilleurs exemples d'une grande conférence virtuelle gratuite pour éducateurs est toujours la Conférence sur l' éducation mondiale , avec des présentateurs et des participants venus du monde entier, tous axés sur l' éducation dans un contexte mondial. 

 

Le Webinar – chaque jour, il y a des milliers de webinars (en ligne et en direct) de 30 à 90 minutes sur ​ des sujets très variés. Certains sont payant, d'autres sont gratuits. Il est facile de les organiser et facile d'y assister. Ils peuvent être un moyen rapide d'explorer un nouveau sujet. Ils peuvent être suivis seul ou avec un groupe de collègues enseignants dans la même pièce, en prenant le temps de débriefer et discuter ensuite.

What It Means To Teach

What It Means To Teach | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Teaching means…

…to help another person understand.

…to help another person understand why something is worth understanding.

…to help another person responsibly use what they know.

…to artfully connect students and content in authentic contexts.

…to cause change.

…to cognitively agitate.

…that relationships with children are the bedrock for everything else.

…to be able to see individual faces, needs, opportunities, and affections where others see a classroom of students.

…that you should always know the difference between what you taught and what they learned.

…to model curiosity.

…that students will likely never forget you (or that one thing you said, the time you lost your temper, how you made them feel, etc.)

…to know what it actually means to “understand.”

…to create a need for students to reorganize and repack their intellectual baggage.

…to self-critique your own biases, blind spots, and other “broken perceptions”

…to make dozens of crucial decisions on the fly not per day or class but per minute.

…that you’re going to be needed every second of every day in some important way.

…to adjust the timing, general ‘form’, and complexity of a given content so that it seems ‘just in time, just enough, and just for me’ for each student.

…to help students play with complex ideas in pursuit of self-knowledge and personal change.

…to be able to create an awesome lesson plan and unit–and to know when and why to ditch that plan and unit.

…to know the difference between teaching content and teaching thought.

…that you need to know your content well enough to teach any concept, skill, or standard within it 20+ different ways.

…that you’re going to work closely with people that will think differently than you, and learning to bridge those gaps with diplomacy could make or break your happiness

…to help students transfer understanding of academic content to authentic circumstances.

…to accept certain failure.

…to be a lifelong learner yourself.

…to disrupt social imbalances, inequities, and knowledge and skill gaps

…to confront your own weaknesses (technology, pedagogy, content, collaboration, organization, communication, etc.)

…to really, truly change the world (for the better or the worse).

…that you’re going to need a lot of help from everyone.

…to operate under unclear terms for success.

…to explain, model, and connect.

…to change, change, change.

…that in terms of sheer mathematical probability, you’re not going to be teaching for more than five years (if you’ve already passed that, congratulations!)

…that your ‘comfort zone’ no longer matters.

…your teaching program probably didn’t prepare you well (e.g., your ability to empathize and engage and design are more important than anything else you learned in said program).

…to practice humility.

Emanuel Pineda's curator insight, April 26, 8:03 PM
Even though educating people has been an ancient activity, it is curious how teaching can unfold countless definitions throughout mankind history; hence, teacher must be aware of the important role which they are performing within a society "teaching refers to creating a need for students to reorganize and repack their intellectual baggage."

The Complexities of Collaboration

The Complexities of Collaboration | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Through my experiences and after questioning other educators, I have determined that your ability to collaborate effectively is influenced by many factors-
  • Previous experience
  • Growth mindset
  • School context
  • Time
  • Personality
  • Insecurity
  • Perceived value of collaboration
  • Understanding of collaboration-what it is and isn’t.
  • Appreciation of others
  • Learning philosophy
  • Balanced Contribution
  • Belief in a common goal
  • Autonomy or Interdependence- Seeing yourself as ‘we’ not just ‘me'

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

 

Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”

“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.)

.

On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

Morality - Ethics

Morality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Morality (from the Latin "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are "good" (or right) and those that are "bad" (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.)

Les 4 tendances actuelles du e-learning présentées (en anglais) sous forme d'infographie:

- le big data (permet de mieux comprendre comment un apprenant s'approprie l'information et d'ajuster le contenu au juste besoin)

- le mobile learning (l'utilisation croissante de petits écrans pour se former nécessite des grains plus courts et visuels)

- la personnalisation (dans un futur proche, chaque apprenant pourra vivre une expérience d'apprentissage unique)

- l'edutainment (la gamification favorise l'engagement et la motivation des apprenants et un apprentissage plus efficace basé sur l'action)
