20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Rick Davidson Education | 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.

Growth and learning beyond schooling - think outside in-service and conferences/professional workshops.

What teachers likely need more than ever is to choose their professional learning. I use words like andragogy, forming, and learning, rather than development.

I've tried the quiz and sharing documents.  Very nice.  It's a good site to be able to use although I didn't know there was so many other ways it could be used.

Glad You Asked About the Digital Generation

The central issue is that kids today look pretty much the same as we did growing up, which belies the fact that on inside they are completely different.

 

Because of digital bombardment and their pervasive exposure to digital technology—exposure that primarily happens outside of school hours—our kids’ brains are literally being “rewired” on an ongoing basis. Their brains are constantly adapting to accommodate all the technology they spend so much time surrounded by.

 

They are what Canadian futurist Don Tapscott calls “screenagers”—the first generation that has grown up with a computer mouse and the assumption that images on a screen are to be interacted with. These technologies are their new learning tools and also are something to project their very identity onto – what writer Marc Prensky calls “digital natives.”
