Professional Development

This group is intended for people who provide technology PD to teachers. I think there are a lot of resources and ideas about best practice that we can share.

We have now branched out in response to educators needs and now offer free and open access to our Groups4Schools Community. All inclusive resources to work and learn in Groups, no need to look elsewhere for one off tools. Archived feeds, filing and all the resources you need to connect, create, share, communicate and collaborate in one place.

From one educator to others we hope you will drop by, join or create a group and take advantage of our community to work and learn virtually.

Visit Groups4Schools click on the Community, visit our portal splash page then send us an email for password access, again open, free and private groups.

We've all been looking for those all encompassing online virtual toolsets to connect students so they can create, edit, share, communicate and collaborate. We're working with a vendor in Boston who has a great toolset, free access but we built out a "private branded community" with them for our biotech high school students use. Working in groups on projects now allows us to connect all team members, all school projects and all schools with each other including their teachers, mentors and the organizers. Want to know more please contact me...see our front door access

I need advice, insight, suggestions - whatever you've got! I work for The Eighth Floor consortium and teach technology integration to area educators. We have a ning site.  We are trying to make our site a hub for the consortium and a place to go for information. We are having trouble getting any real momentum. Any ideas on how to jump start this with a little power?  

I know that sometimes nings are blocked at K-12 schools, so that is a challenge. How do we compete for a slice of the educator's time? I would love to see our members posting and sharing.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I have just completed the Spring 2011 edition of the Western News Exchange Newsletter--24 pages of information on conferences, lesson ideas, feedback from the NBEA Convention in New Orleans and the WBEA Conference in Seattle.  Have a look at the newsletter and contact me with future articles, ideas, or comments.  Here is the link:  Enjoy!

Can you identify such schools. I do not know how much I can do, but I will make the effort if I knew where to start.
Comment by Jennifer on October 18, 2010 at 11:15pm
Yes there should. I think that there are people out in the world who over look our own childern in the US.
Comment by Bob Zenhausern on October 16, 2010 at 8:24am
I live in NY City so have a biased view of what is available in schools. Are there schools in the US which do not have computers? If so, this is clearly something that should be addressed and corporate sponsorship should be sought.
