8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought | Online, Blended, & Flipped Learning | 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."
