Educational leaders need to model the use of technology in their own work with teachers to showcase the ever growing possibilities and ensure sustainability. As well, teachers need opportunities for professional development that happen within their classroom walls and which are embedded into their individual instruction and curricula.
Attending this session will give you the information you need to create your own Professional Learning Network and use the learned information to support the individual needs of your staff as a passionate, guiding leader. We will describe how to use tools such as Facebook, blogs and Twitter to obtain and communicate information and concepts that will further the learning opportunities for your students and staff. Furthermore, along with pulled out grouped professional development, teachers desperately need the chance to have someone provide "just in time" learning based on their individual needs. In asking the right questions, modeling, mentoring, lesson planning and curricular concepts can be provided through on-site, meaningful coaching. Hear how Jennifer and Andrew used both of these important concepts in tandem to build true sustainability at Lawrence Middle School in New Jersey.
