Innovative Professional Development: Ideas for Making It Relevant and Meaningful with Lyn Hilt

How do you tell your school's story? Social media provides schools with new avenues to share the great work happening in classrooms with the wider community. Join Dr. Monica Burns, founder of ClassTechTips.com to learn about the best strategies, tips, and tools for telling your community and the world about the successes at your school. Monica will include advice and guidance for those just getting started, as well as suggest ways you can take your school's social media use to the next level.

Providing teachers with autonomy in their learning during professional development and in-service days is proving to be a successful strategy for today's school leaders. Using the models of Atlassian's "FedEx Days," Google's 20% time, and the "unconference" model inspired by Edcamps, school leaders can promote autonomy among their teachers with substantial learning outcomes. Learn how easy it is to design and implement this type of professional development day in your school. Join Lyn Hilt as she shares examples from schools that have successfully enjoyed these days of learning.
