20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Online Learning and Educational Technology | 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.

Ines Bieler's curator insight, March 18, 8:24 AM
I am Co-Keynoting next fall and we've chosen as our topic the necessity of sustained, engaging ProD. How to start it and how to grow it. Our focus is a little different but this article does hit upon several of the means that we are gathering. Thank you! In the end, we are convinced that it comes down to relationships. The teachers need to respect each other professionally and care for each other personally. If you have that, you have every ingredient necessary for a successful PD program. Any of these 20 program ideas can work if you have those relationships. 
Victor Ventura's curator insight, March 18, 9:46 AM
Anything goes in PD. Make it work for you in terms of time, location, in person/online, source, funding, and your preference for individual, small team, district, or strangers. 
Danny Castaño's curator insight, March 21, 12:22 AM
We can found in this article 20 different ideas in order to go beyond traditional practices since we are in a digital area with new desires and expectations from students about their learning process and for that we need to grow professionally as teachers. We can highlight some of the most relvevan ones such as "The Webinar with live sessions, Video Tutorials even when is one of the most common strategies,  is really helpful to our professional development, Graduate Courses and Programs online as well to get more knowledge about topics of interest, and other such as Accountability Partners, Training Programs and so on. We need to keep in mind that teachers can't never stop learning.
