 In the current constrained financial climate, this type of low cost, self-directed teacher development is interesting. Might the spread of such informal, peer-based, online CPD help to support the drive to raise teaching standards at minimal cost? This report explores this question, focusing on:

• how teachers and other educators are currently using social media to aid their professional development, and what they and their students gain from it;

• what evidence there is for the benefits of peer-to-peer teacher CPD, and for using social media in this way; and

• what teaching can learn from industry in this respect.

Drawing on emerging academic research in this area, and on the experience of trailblazing teachers, it recommends ways in which school leaders and policymakers can exploit the benefits of social media for effective and affordable teacher professional development.
