    ... but also connected to the teacher’s needs and the realities of the classroom (regular surveys and data collected to inform PD planning???)
  • - teachers are distributed along a continuum of stages of adoption -- and will continue to be the case as new technologies continue to emerge and impact education
    - teachers also differ along dimensions of professional life, personal life, affinity/aversion to technology, others??? (discuss), discipline/grade level/educational assignment

  • 3. Poll: PD Roles What is your primary role relative to PD? • Consumer (participant; others provide/lead) • Creator (create/design PD; rarely lead) • Implementer (lead/run PD created by others) • Creator/Implementer (create and lead PD) • Director (set goals/direction/priorities) • Evaluator (collect data; research efficacy/needs)
  • 4. Keep These Q’s in mind... • Who do you discuss PD with in your district/building? • What idea(s) will you follow up on – to implement or study more? • How do these ideas/concepts connect with your district priorities & classrooms? – What fits? What doesn't? Is there a need to change?
