Teaching the Teachers

Professional development is an important part of the process for teachers working in grades K – 12.  Librarians should play an important role in this facilitation according to the AASL Standards.  In the July webinar for our Emerging Tech community,  presenter Michelle Luhtala showcased 5 professional development workshop ideas that librarians can facilitate.  Among these examples were ones related to Common Core integration, resource evaluation, and practical applications for using iPads in the classroom.  Check out the full webinar by clicking the image below.
