Great news for me today as I was informed that I have $800.00 to spend on professional development. I teach technology to students in grades 2-8 and do workshops for staff too. I really want to put the money to good use.
So, I am looking for suggestions on how to spend it. I teach in Western North Carolina so local workshops/conferences would be a real plus, but I am also open to online courses. Anyone have anything that has struck them as a real must have PD workshop regarding any and everything tech? How would you spend it? Should I splurge and go to a big workshop or sprinkle it around a bit? I've always been eager to go to the big ISTE conference, but I'd like to do something earlier in the year.
What do you think?
As always, thanks for any ideas or suggestions!
