PBS Teachers Live Should be in Every Teacher’s Toolbox

Webinars and Educational Professional Development

The life of a teacher is very demanding and organization is necessary. This is also true for those entrusted to lead and provide professional development for their educational staff. Given this amazing age of technology, regardless of budget, there is no reason that professional development is not occurring within schools.

All of the webinars posted here in this article, can be utilized to strengthen and enrich any school faculty. Time can be manipulated and educators can watch at their own pace or educators can be assembled and view webinar as a whole and collaborate in groups afterwards. This type of professional development is only going to increase not decrease as we progress further into the world of technology. There are many curriculum developers/professional development trainers, who utilize programs like these mentioned to create meaningful professional development for educators around the world.

Given our economy, we are going to need to be more creative with our training. Training cannot stop due to funding. Teachers still need to be prepared to teach the 21-Century student, we just need to be creative. MSN as created a fabulous tool for any organization looking to create “living” documents. For educators, this tool can be multi-faceted and utilized with students or within a building for aligning curriculum. This is just two of unlimited possibilities with OneNote.

Online education and Financial Aid

Visit edreformer.com or click on the link below to join the conversation this Thursday.  Virtual schools are coming, regardless if we want them to or not.  If we are going to meet the needs of ALL students, then virtual classrooms are a component needed for the 21st century student. Many states are creating mandates for students to have a certain number of virtual instruction before high school graduation.  There are many national discussions these days on education.  Join one and be informed. I would encourage everyone interested to not be a “Monday morning quarterback” but an active participant…http://edreformer.com/2010/12/k12-aventa-learning-hosting-free-webinar/
