“Despite decades of existing research, most professional development programs fail to adhere to established criteria for effectiveness. The Center for Public Education found that while over 90% of teachers reported that they engaged in some type of professional development during the year, most found it to be completely ineffective.” In a recent edWebinar, sponsored by ClassLink and co-hosted by CoSN and AASA, three district leaders from Wake County Public School System Superintendent Cathy Moore, Senior Director of Digital Learning and Libraries Allison Reid, and Marlo Gaddis, Chief Technology Officer, discussed critical guidelines for implementing successful professional technology development.
As mathematics pedagogy moves further toward thinking about the process of getting the answer rather than just the answer itself, developing problem-solving skills is key to student success. With the continued move to distance learning and digital resources, educators need to make sure any tools support this new mindset. During an edWeb edLeader Panel sponsored by ORIGO Education, the presenters offered their key criteria for digital mathematics tools and how they should support teachers and students.
Educators will share how they go about engaging teachers in sustained social learning with mentors and peers.
Presented by Rachel Jorgensen, Coordinator of Work-Based Learning, Anoka-Hennepin School District, MN; Robert Letcher, Founder, EdGenuis; and Patricia Gagnon, SVP, Programs & Practice, Intellispark

Shifting from an industrial-age education model to a post-industrial learner-centered model is an essential part of preparing students for college and 21st century careers, and the process works best when the learner-centered approach is applied to the professional learning of teachers and administrators, as well as the education of their students.
In this edWebinar, you will hear from experts in the field regarding best practices for professional learning opportunities and share your own examples of quality professional learning experiences.
