Education and technology are fast-changing, dynamic spaces, and personal learning needs are at a all-time high. But with school budgets being tight and release days being scarce, it’s difficult to attend traditional conferences or other professional development events.
Enter personal learning networks! Social media lets us learn when and where we want and to tailor the learning experience to our own individual needs. Twitter is one way to do this. If you haven’t used Twitter or aren’t sure how you would use it for PD, try tuning into EdChat (you can see it on Twitter at #edchat or browse transcripts of previous sessions here – see right sidebar) on Tuesdays at 12pm or 7pm ET.
Another way to advance your own learning goals is through virtual conferences. One great opportunity coming up in the Global Education Conference running from Nov. 15-19. All the exciting sessions are listed here, and if you can’t make the scheduled dates, everything will be archived for access later.
Take charge of your learning today with these great opportunities!
