I found two things pretty wonderful about this post on the future of #PD:

The main issues she identifies that are facing Professional Development:  

1. There is an over-saturation of information.

2. We are not teaching teachers in ways that we want them to teach kids.

3. #Learning is not differentiated in any way.

4. Rather than sticking with what works and building on it, PD tends to go in the direction of the latest fad.

The second thing I found wonderful about this post is the 2 minute PD. 

What would you do a 2 minute PD about? What would it look like?

I would challenge all of you to create a 2 minute PD as a part of this. I know I will!

  1. The great habits great readers (Bambrick santoyo) uses this in a way- they have 2-4 minute snippets of teachers teaching guided reading.  These videos are used in a coaching cycle to home in on a specific technique… I am finding it to be really useful.  Im going to think about micro PDs and how I can use them more.. hmmmm

  5. I can help you and your associates to make videos with higher production value. You can use your own voice and an avatar of yourself or some other character to play the role of presenter/protagonist. The background image can be of your choosing and you can add text or other images in the background. There are two projects that I can help you with, Moviestorm for iPad and Moviestorm. There are educational licenses so you can use Moviestorm in the classroom. I help teachers to flip their learning environments with project based lessons which cover core content. These can be done by the students in your class and or by you and your professional associated to supply content for PD.
