In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.
How many times have I sat passively in a PD session thinking 1.) that I have already attended sessions that delivered this content and feel ready to accelerate my learning? 2.) that I have found better solutions myself than the ones being offered in the PD? Teachers should be active participants, have the ability to progress beyond the content, and the opportunity to disagree with presenters (citing evidence) and present improved solutions. After all, experienced teachers are educational experts.
Raising the status of teachers as experts in our own field of experience will have incredible impact on our effectiveness, professionalism and job satisfaction.
I am no technology expert, but gaming structures, social media platforms, and "create your own story" technologies should provide guidance for creating PD sessions that teachers can customize, create and share.
