20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Transformational Teaching and 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.

20 scénarios d'accompagnement au développement professionnel de l'enseignant. Des idées très intéressantes et moins documentées y figurent ...

Gilles Le Page's curator insight, April 27, 3:20 AM

c'est en anglais, pas vraiment génial, mais certaines pistes sont bonnes ...

Exemples (traduction libre) :

 

La Conférence virtuelle - Construite sur ​​l'idée de la conférence traditionnelle, ce type de conférence nécessite un dispositif et une connexion Internet. Une conf. virtuelle peut inclure des présentateurs et des participants de partout dans le monde, ils sont souvent peu coûteux ou gratuits, et donnent accès aux idées étonnantes d'autres écoles ou éducateurs. 

Avantage supplémentaire : la plupart des sessions sont enregistrées, et peuvent être partagées avec des collègues. 

Un des meilleurs exemples d'une grande conférence virtuelle gratuite pour éducateurs est toujours la Conférence sur l' éducation mondiale , avec des présentateurs et des participants venus du monde entier, tous axés sur l' éducation dans un contexte mondial. 

 

Le Webinar – chaque jour, il y a des milliers de webinars (en ligne et en direct) de 30 à 90 minutes sur ​ des sujets très variés. Certains sont payant, d'autres sont gratuits. Il est facile de les organiser et facile d'y assister. Ils peuvent être un moyen rapide d'explorer un nouveau sujet. Ils peuvent être suivis seul ou avec un groupe de collègues enseignants dans la même pièce, en prenant le temps de débriefer et discuter ensuite.
