Historically, collaboration took place when two or more individuals occupied the same space at the same time and exchanged and revised ideas. It has often been said, “In a room full of smart people, the smartest person is the room!” With the technology at hand today, there are no boundaries of time or space with collaboration.
One of the goals of professional development should be to provide meaningful, effective professional development, where teachers are invigorated and inspired.
In celebration of October is Connected Educator Month the New Teacher Help community on edWeb.net hosted a webinar all about building and growing your Professional Learning Network.
