With the increased prominence of social media and technology, professional development for teachers has become even more important in order to stay on the right side of the curve. It used to be that we improved our practice by commiserating with our immediate colleagues and maybe went to a conference or a seminar. Now it’s vastly different, where “colleagues” can live half-way around the world and can contribute ideas to our own development.

In this week’s episode, Dave talks to Sandy Kendell, who helps teachers in her school district with their own professional development. She talks about the role social media has played in her work and in her own development as well. She also talks about how the use of more varied educational technologies over the last 10-20 years has enabled teachers to enhance their teaching practices. She’s a wonderful person to follow on Twitter if you’re interested in keeping up with all of this.

In addition to Sandy, there are many other great things to listen for. We explain our host rotation, talk about what “learning apps” meant to us when we were in school, and so much more.
