  • From static, paper-based calendars to online database driven, shared and collaborative calendars that include informal events and online webinars
    http://www.edna.edu.au/edna/go/events
  • Associations using LibraryThing to promote a small professional library for members of resources
    Use of National Library’s Trove Lists feature to share professional reading lists
  • What proportion should/do you spend on each type of PD?
    What are the characteristics of each type of PD?
    The challenges?
    This session deals mostly with types 3 - 5
  • WA College of Teachers requirements are #employment-related and also career-relatedDefinition of professional learning vs professional development, p. 3Professional learning is integral to raising teaching standards. Teacher professional learning is an ongoing process supported by
    planned learning activities and programs designed to enhance professional knowledge, practice and engagement.
    Professional development refers to what teachers do and experience that provide the opportunities to enhance professional
    knowledge, practice and engagement.
    Professional learning describes the professional growth in knowledge, skills and attitudes that come from being engaged in
    professional development activities, processes and experiences.
    Teachers and other educators often use the terms “professional learning” and “professional development” interchangeably.
    The College uses the term “professional learning” to reflect more accurately that it is not just the knowledge gained in a
    professional development session that makes the most difference to professional practice, but how this knowledge is applied.
    How are you recording professional learning?
  • Classroom practice
    Working with others
    Research and scholarship
  • Wiki projects are the ultimate in the sharing economy. Wikis represent one of the most accessible and flexible platforms for building knowledge and collaborative learning. Todd (2008) describes the power of wikis in terms such as “open, contributory, living documents that facilitate social construction of knowledge, negotiation of meaning, and group’s best effort, not an individual.” In helping students learn about wikis and collaborative learning, it is impossible to ignore the power and potential benefit of collaborative projects such as Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects, and we do our students a disservice if we fail to address the specifics of these projects in our information literacy programmes.
    Wikimedia Commons is a media file repository making available over three million public domain and freely-licensed educational media content (images, sound and video clips) to all and to which anyone can contribute. The important page to work through with students and teachers is Commons: Reusing content outside Wikimedia.[i] [i]Commons: Reusing content outside Wikimedia, 2008 http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Reusing_content_outside_Wikimedia
    Commons.wikimedia.org – search for pictures, videos etc
    School libraries can support creative educators and students by providing and promoting efficient access to sources of open learning resources. The Wikimedia (2009) philosophy of bringing free content to the world is one example.
