Education Week webinars

Education Week (for the K-12 crowd) also offers free webinars to keep you abreast of what's happening!  This one just came my way today:

Tapping the Power of Online PD
Thursday, October 27, 2 to 3 p.m. EDT
Also available "on demand" any time 24 hours after the event.

Free registration is now open.
Social networking and other online tools now provide a full menu of professional development opportunities that range from discussions on Twitter to personal learning networks on Ning and sharing of useful classroom resources on Google+. The online offerings are also spawning new types of professional development opportunities, dubbed Edcamps, which provide face-to-face interaction. Supporters say social networking provides vast resources of knowledge, is instantaneous, and targeted. But some educators caution that navigating through those networks can be confusing and time-consuming. Our guests will discuss what works best in this fast-evolving area of online PD.
  • Kyle Pace, instructional technology specialist, Lee’s Summit School District, Lee’s Summit, Mo.
  • Shelly S. Terrell, former elementary school teacher, author of the blog Teacher Reboot Camp.
This webinar will be moderated by Michelle R. Davis, senior writer, Education Week Digital Directions.
Register for this free webinar.
All Education Week webinars are archived and accessible "on demand" for up to six months after the original live-streaming date.
