'Redesigning Professional Development: How to Slay the Sit and Get Dragon'

Far too frequently, Professional Development (PD) is synonymous with lecture. It seems we forget about pedagogy and good teaching and ask teachers to just Sit and Get -- even lecturing about the importance of avoiding lectures in our own classrooms! It is time to slay the "Sit and Get Dragon! This session will explore ways to develop a differentiated technology integration PD model, a model that recognizes the importance of accommodating your staff’s wide range of learning styles and of supporting their varying skills and experiences with technology integration. At the heart of differentiated PD is the assumption that teaching and learning, and NOT the technology itself, must form the core of all of our continuing education programming and that meaningful technology integration requires far more than dressing up the old factory model wolf in digital sheep’s clothing. Participants will leave the session with numerous practical examples of blended and differentiated PD models as well as with a wealth of suggestions about how to begin transforming PD organically and/or District-wide at home.
