What was the inspiration behind writing Digital PD for educators?
We all need to get comfortable in this online space; the sooner, the better. This is an area where we encourage them to reach out and build a PLN, their professional learning family. It gives educators or readers a tangible resource to read and implement the content immediately. We designed it as, like Matt said, a workbook or a processing guide. It's very practical and tangible and too.
Growing and learning is a continuous process for everyone…including educators. Let us guide you through different digital professional development opportunities that can strengthen your practice and confidence in your classroom.
