How Sharing Other People's Content Makes You an Irresistible Job Candidate | Mashable.com | Professional Development | Scoop.it

When it comes to standing out online, your best bet is to offer your own original content. Blog posts or tweets that revolve around your unique ideas will make you a standout candidate.

 

But the truth is, not everyone has the time, writing ability or even confidence to grow a quality blog or social media account, and plenty of people who don’t have a blog still want to move up the career ladder, into more challenging and better-paying positions.

 

What if there was a way to show the world just how smart you are, without creating your own content?

 

Well, there is, and it’s a tactic you should seriously consider: sharing other people’s content.

 

Whether you curate on Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Scoop.it! or all of the above, here are five things sharing content created by others says about you — and why it can move your career forward.

Have to say I agree with a lot of this, especially this part about PLNs "Social learning through PLNs has become a tour de force and it’s not run by any one company. It’s not something to be monetized and refined. It’s rough, all over the place, and always changing. That’s why it’s so great. PLNs, to me, are the future of online professional development."

The principle of 'one size does not fit all' applies as much to adult learning as for our students. We need to adopt a blended 'fit for purpose & audience' approach to professional development.

Have you ever felt like a ship at sea without a destination plan? I mean ... like you are "just existing" and life really doesn't have a meaning??? I would venture to say "feeling that way" is an indication that you probably don't have a "compass" for your life -- a directional instrumental that let's you know when (and if) you have strayed off course. You're on a journey -- this thing we call life -- but you don't have a plan. Without a plan, you can get turnaround and sometimes discover that you have lost yourself in the process of living. I have found that a life plan is a wonderful tool! It is filled with your hopes, dreams and desires; it is centered around YOU. With a life plan as a guide, life is filled with bliss!!

Next Level Leadership {Mark Miller}

Next Level Leadership {Mark Miller} | Professional Development | Scoop.it

The team I serve on at Chick-fil-A recently completed a leadership talent review. The purpose of this exercise was to calibrate our views on current and emerging leaders, identify gaps in our leadership pipeline and create development plans for individual leaders. If you’ve not done a review like this of your leaders, I highly recommend it.

Nice reflection piece that can be applied not only to edtech professional development but any PD for teachers. Note to teacher librarians: how do you present professional development to your staff?

How Millennials Are Transforming Careers and the Workplace

How Millennials Are Transforming Careers and the Workplace | Professional Development | Scoop.it

A Millennial Branding study reported that 45% of Millennials will choose workplace flexibility over pay; 72% want to have a job where they can have an impact; and due to the impact of the recent recession and current high unemployment rate for young people, need economic security (according to a recent AP analysis, more than 53 percent of recent college grads are unemployed or underemployed). An MTV survey reported Millennials want more flexible hours and ability to work remotely with technology; they want to set their own hours and dress how they want; and they believe they can teach older workers and their bosses a thing or two.

The 4 Components of a DIY Professional Development Toolkit | Edutopia.org

The 4 Components of a DIY Professional Development Toolkit | Edutopia.org | Professional Development | Scoop.it

Education has always been a reflection of broader cultural values. As such, the roles of teachers and students have evolved as our models of education have moved from one iteration to another. Teachers who once traveled to town to instruct a heterogeneous room full of passive learners on matters of rote memorization have come to adopt new roles and philosophies toward learning. As these new models have emerged, educators have been required to hone their skills and adapt to ever changing sets of priorities, needs and expectations.

 

Where such trainings were once the sole responsibility of state and district organizations, many teachers are now seeing the value of venturing out to amalgamate their own professional learning experiences. While no two paths are the same, there are four components of effective do-it-yourself (DIY) professional development that all educational professionals should consider.
