  17. 17. Staff Professional Development• The integration of ICT in the classroom requires time and effort by the teacher.• From my personal experience teachers are neither given the time, nor the appropriate training.• So here are some ideas to begin your training process.
  18. 18. Tech BrekkiesThe idea is to have a quick half hour catch up ontools, tips and tricks in Information andCommunication Technologies and good teachingpedagogy.

  20. 20. Twenty-20The twenty-20 challenge is an idea to havemembers present 5 minute keynotepresentations with the use of pictures andminimal text and be given 20-30 seconds perslide.
  21. 21. Speed-GeekingSpeed-Geeking is a bit like “Speed-Dating” andinvolves members with a skill in a particular ICTtool providing small group training and givenjust 5 minutes to get this done.
  22. 22. In the history of innovation, the "revolutionary" approach oftenfails, because it doesn’t take the human factor into account.

  26. 26. What is a PLN? PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network.Teachers have always had learning networks.Previously they included teachers in yourschool, old workmates, a few colleagues fromUniversity and maybe a number of presenters atworkshops (like Future Science) you hadattended. We learn from these people and weshare with them also.
  27. 27. What is a PLN?Your PLN no longer needs to include only thosewho you can physically “catch-up” with. You donot even need to have met these people. Butthese people can be all be a source for yourprofessional development.
