What does an internet professional do?
The Internet is a great tool for Internet Professional
Networking is the means by which professional development (PD) of teachers can and should be provided. The latest internet technology allows PD to be delivered anywhere and anytime, as long as one can have a working computer and an internet connection.
PROBLEM WITH PD
The problem with traditional PD is that it is a one-size-fits-all contract. Take your time, listen to the person who is criticizing you, and walk away with a few tracts that are more likely to deceive you than to help you. It doesn’t work just because it doesn’t let you know the topic. The best form of professional development must be continuous and is intended to allow participants to know the topic, so that it can be used in a single phase teaching process.
The network allows PD developers to deal with time constraints with appropriate planning methods for guidance. The best teaching methods suggest that learning materials should be ‘collected’ in small pieces and that students should be encouraged to learn at their own pace.
What does that mean for you? Imagine learning to use the new learning skills at your own pace through a series of short video tutorials (example cheating), and practice files designed to guide you step by step. be able to learn the subject at your own pace. Imagine being able to watch a video and exercise as often as you need to, in order to understand the concept. Imagine you have the opportunity to have a workshop where a teacher or other students find your questions. This is how the internet can solve the problems associated with PD culture.
At the risk of stating what appears, PD should be appropriate for the study of learning disabilities. This often contradicts the provision of some PDs, especially meetings offered by product vendors. Software providers all often think that what works in the business world can be used for education.
Let’s take a look at one of the most popular and simple components of classroom programming: Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint, as used in business presentations, often tries to motivate or entertain the audience. The purpose of the PowerPoint classroom is to help students learn about the presentation. Obviously, both types of proposals require different approaches and professional approaches. Teaching teachers how to create business-type presentations will be a complete waste of time for both the leader and the teachers. Teachers need to learn how to create presentations that improve their teaching skills, not create presentations to see in the business world.
Continuing with the previous example, we discuss the issue of continuous training. Learning “breaking” encourages the learner to move on to more advanced and complex topics at their own pace. The PowerPoint PD division into three parts – basic, structured and learning / teaching as presented – encourages the teacher to delve deeper into the subject through ongoing learning. These topics cannot be learned from your traditional two-hour PD presentation. PD-shaped PDs encourage teachers to continue to master their skills.
IMAGINE ONLINE POWER PD
Imagine what a PD would look like if the best ones were allowed to happen. Think:
come home after a hard day in the classroom and relax, because you can access PD online
access to online PD materials 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
get to PD from the comfort of your home Saturday morning in your comfortable pajamas, coffee in hand
you will be able to review sections of PD online so that you understand the concepts presented
get to the classroom’s PD site to a point that neither you nor your students understand.
Imagine doing that in a traditional PD session, you can’t!
ADMISSION TO SCHOOL AREAS
It may be time to reconsider your approach to PD if you have not taken PD online within your school district:
Think about how Internet technology allows us to connect with experts from around the world. Imagine the benefit it would have for your organization if teachers could participate in online professional development with some of the leading education experts.
Have you thought about promoting your organization’s expertise in other parts of the school through the power of PD?
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR TEACHERS
Let’s face it, asking teachers to attend professional development meetings after a hard day at school can pay off at the best times. Online PD may simply be the answer to your expert development. If you are unsure about a startup, Google will use the term “update capabilities [insert your site / title]”. This should point you in the right direction.
The Internet and its related technologies have provided us with tools to improve our use of technology. Improvements in the design and implementation of PD can only lead to better professional development of teacher trainers.
