Educator Viewpoints: Personalized Professional Learning Today
Personalized professional learning is the holy grail for educators. Over 200 principals and 300 teachers responded to the Personalized Professional Learning Survey, sharing their viewpoints on best practices and challenges for creating a personalized professional learning climate. What do the results of the survey tell us about how districts can:
  • Shift from a culture of compliance to connection in the professional learning?
  • Strengthen the links between a teacher's professional growth needs and professional learning experiences?
  • Create a backdrop for principals to transform teacher professional learning?
This webinar features two experienced district leaders who invite you to join in the conversation on the best approaches to "AMPing" up actionable, meaningful, and personalized professional learning. Jump into the survey results and get to the heart of personalized professional learning today—you may be surprised at the pitfalls and practices that make a difference.

Technology is a crucial tool to create new opportunities and a wider perspective for students in rural districts. Online courses bring teachers, subjects, and experts to students who wouldn't otherwise have access to them. Teaching technology skills allows students to compete with their peers from more urban areas. But rural education leaders must be creative in their efforts to pay for and build reliable infrastructure, provide home Internet access for students, and implement ed-tech programs. In this webinar, Matt Akin, superintendent of the Piedmont City school district in Alabama, and a 2016 Education Week Leaders to Learn From honoree, shares the strategies he has used to digitize his school system.
