August 1, 1-2:30 PM ET This is the kick-off event for Professional Learning and the Learning Profession, one of the main forums for CEM, covering such questions as:
- What and where are the best (social) opportunities for educators to work on and learn for their practice in the coming year?
- What steps should every educator consider taking to become more connected, and what are the key resources that can help?
- In what kinds of learning do teachers (and other educators) need to be engaged in the 21st century, and how will technology help?
- What are the key methodological and content trends in the classroom (e.g., flipped classrooms, core standards) with which technology (in general) and communities or networks (specifically) can impact and help?
The kick-off will consist of panel and open discussion moderated by Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach. Panelists will include Cathy Gassenheimer, Jackie Gerstein, Caren Levine, Stephanie Sandifer, Kathy Schrock, and Will Richardson.
