PD From Your Living Room

For many of us, the thought of staying after school for ONE MORE professional development session is akin to torture.

At home PD

We cherish the opportunity to head home, change into jeans, and kick back. In our hearts we know that we do need to stay on top of changes in technology and education. If we could just do it from our living room!

Now you can. The Maine Learning Technology Initiative offers a series of weekly webinars. Offered live at 3:15 and 7:15pm each Thursday, they cover a variety of topics of interest to educators with a focus on using technology to improve teaching and learning.

If you can’t attend the live webinar, MLTI archives all webinars for all past sessions. Take a look and see what you think.

  1. Lydia – Succinct and simple. I love it when you say, “In our hearts we know that we do need to stay on top of changes in technology and education. If we could just do it from our living room!
    Now you can.”

    More and more, as I am part of conversations about new projects, I point to the MLTI webinars as an example of what is possible. These webinars are great, but the machine is in place and able to go 24/7… What else could we, as a state, be doing with this capability?

    And how are we leveraging what these folks have learned from the doing of webinars? What works best? What would they never do again? What tips, tricks, and doo-dahs are most effective?

    Cheers.

  2. This is an excellent model of what PD can look like in this technology driven age. On demand learning, I like it! Now we need to offer our students the same extra learning that they can attend to at their pace, in their time.
