20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective

20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
Administrators often ask how to best utilize their staff meeting time to promote best instructional practices and improve professional development.

 

It has been said that once teachers start teaching, we become the most uneducated of professionals about our own profession, failing to research and implement the cutting-edge best practices that make the difference in student engagement and learning. We can’t use 20th century practices with our 21st century students.

 

In order to encourage and even demand curiosity, creativity, learning, sharing and growing in our students, we must model those traits within our own profession; a staff meeting is the perfect time to cultivate these skills within and among our colleagues.

The Future Internet: Service Web 3.0

Future Internet - Supported by STI International: http://www.sti2.org 

 

With over a billion users, today's Internet is arguably the most successful human artifact ever created. The Future Internet, an initiative driven by the European Union, has become a prime research focus of STI International and the Service Web 3.0 project.

 

In order to explain, promote, and attract new contributors, we created a video to be viewed by stakeholders, who may be non-experts, in a new generation Internet. The video outlines the basic themes of the European Union's Future Internet initiative.

 

These include: an Internet of Services, where services are ubiquitous; ===> an Internet of Things where in principle every physical object becomes an online addressable resource <===; a Mobile Internet where 24/7 seamless connectivity over multiple devices is the norm; and the need for semantics in order to meet the challenges presented by the dramatic increase in the scale of content and users.

 

=============================================

 

Gust MEES:  By knowing this now we should develop a proactive and critical thinking and teach this also as any device connecting to Internet is vulnerable and could present a security risk, once infected by malware.

More and more devices will connect to Internet, even TV's and other household devices... There were already infected TV's discovered, oh yes it's starting already, check out here:

Social media environments and online communities are innovative collaborative technologies that challenge traditional definitions of information literacy. Metaliteracy is an overarching and self-referential framework that integrates emerging technologies and unifies multiple literacy types.

 

This redefinition of information literacy expands the scope of generally understood information competencies and places a particular emphasis on producing and sharing information in participatory digital environments.
