edWeb.net has just released its 2020 Teacher Professional Learning Survey. For three years, edWeb has conducted an annual survey on professional learning and how edWeb meets educators’ needs. Each year the survey shows consistency in why teachers engage in professional learning, the features that are most important in a professional learning program, and the impact edWeb has on teaching and student learning. When teachers participate in professional learning, they frequently share their learning with colleagues and the school-wide community, multiplying the impact.
In May 2019, 150 principals from across the country participated in an edWeb survey on the topics, challenges, and accomplishments they experienced this year as the educational leaders in their buildings. Some of the most significant challenges and successes were highlighted in a recent edWebinar presented by Shannon Holden, Principal, Pierce City High School, MO, and Dr. L. Robert Furman, Principal, South Park Elementary Center, PA. Interestingly, no matter what the topic, all principals pointed to a universal message that school culture can either be a catalyst for student success or a roadblock to positive changes.
This edWebinar will discuss and probe the results of the survey with feedback from our live audience, and set the stage for a series of monthly edWebinars that address the most compelling topics.
According to Learning in the 21st Century: the 2019 Digital Promise LVP Survey, 83% of teachers think students are capable of high achievement, but just 26% think students are reaching those levels today. As part of the Learner Variability Project, which “seek[s] to uncover strategies to meet learners where they are across varied contexts and needs,” Digital Promise’s team is examining the key factors for different grades and subject levels that impact student learning. During the edWebinar, “Learning in the 21st Century: What Teachers Think Matters,” the presenters talked about the science of individuality, how they’re using the research to help developers create products to meet these individual needs, and examples that show how the Learner Variability Project can work in the classroom.
This edWebinar will highlight key findings from the survey that focused on learner variability, tailored instruction, use of edtech at school and home, and what informs teacher practice.
