Can Technology Drive Change in Professional Development? by Dave Nagel

Teacher training needs to shift away from one-shot workshops and move toward a model of ongoing, sustainable professional development, according to a new report from the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) released Friday.

The report, "Empowering Teachers: A Professional and Collaborative Approach" (part of SETDA's ongoing Class of 2020: Action Plan for Education series), focuses on technology used to facilitate professional development and spotlights innovative approaches to ongoing teacher and administrator development in K-12 schools, including the use of online communities, portals, and coaching programs.
