On July 16th, 2015 I presented at the GREAT15 Conference in Galway, Ireland. The presentation was a small part of a bigger learning experience I am designing for use in my school district. Below is a link to the presentation which gives a glimpse into the research and one part of the professional development experience I am creating.
As a part of a project for my Masters in Educational Technology, through Michigan State University I looked at research on how best to conduct professional development for technology integration. Below is a link to the website I created to use with the teachers in my district based on my findings. My goal is to implement a learning experience that will extend over time. We will combine face-to-face sessions with online forums and video conferencing. Included on each page of the website are links to a synopsis of the research that drove my design decisions.
In my Instructional Technology position I have also created and presented several professional development sessions. Below is a link to the resources for the Microsoft Outlook training that I created. The link will take you to a OneNote Binder, which you can access online if you do not have OneNote on your computer.
During the Fall 2014 semester I was asked to provide technology professional development to a group of 35 teachers at my school site. One of the trainings I provided was how to use Twitter to develop their Personal Learning Network. Below is a link to the presentation materials.
