Here at PLP, we are all about Connected Learning Communities – which embody our three-pronged approach to professional development. This is what our Connected Learner Experience is all about – building networks, connecting educators to one another, and relearning what we think we know. It’s no surprise that we were involved and instrumental in Connected Educator Month during August of last year. This week, the USDOE released a report all about Connected Educator Month – including the goals, numbers, impact, and recommendations for going forward. We wanted to highlight a few things from the report and encourage you to download and read it yourself.
This is not just a sit-and-get experience. Itâ€™s not your average two-day conference that gets you excited but then leaves you wondering, â€œWhat next?â€ This is your chance to go deeper. This is 7 months of coached, personalized professional learning where you will be a participant in changing your own teaching practice. Youâ€™ll co-create content in a collegial, exclusive community of practice full of other educators just like you who share your struggles and obstacles.
We have a brand new slate of courses for 2013 including topics by popular request like Make & Take Lesson Plans, Web 2.0 101 courses, PBL, Flipped Classroom and more! Buy a punchcard and save on courses for you or a friend. We also offer graduate credit for many of our eCourses. Get complete details or browse our courses below.
