The 13 MUST Know Professional Development Websites for Teachers

The 13 MUST Know Professional Development Websites for Teachers | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it

Professional development ... goes beyond the term 'training' with its implications of learning skills, and encompasses a definition that includes formal and informal means of helping teachers not only learn new skills but also develop new insights into pedagogy and their own practice, and explore new or advanced understandings of content and resources.

Current technologies offer resources to meet these challenges and provide teachers with a cluster of supports that help them continue to grow in their professional skills, understandings, and interests."
