Free PD on Demand for Educators--What, Why, Where, How?
Co-presenters: Dr. Peggy George and Lorna Constantini
In these times of severe budget cuts and compelling needs for meaningful professional development for teachers, we need quality, no-cost/low-cost alternatives. We want/need to respond to the demands for transforming education to meet the needs of 21st century learners, but how? Classroom 2.0 Live co-hosts, Peggy George (retired elementary principal and university pre-service education instructor) and Lorna Costantini (educational consultant in Ontario, Canada) will share how they help educators use Web 2.0 technologies to support learning. Learn how they participate in (and host) free online webinars and conferences on a regular basis, and how they collaborate via Twitter/Facebook to learn from and share with educators in a professional learning network (PLN). In this presentation they will share their discoveries and specific resources to help you learn what's available, where to find it and possible ways to use it for your own "PD on Demand" in your districts/schools.
