Personalized Professional Learning in a Digital Age

Kyle Pace, Instructional Technology Specialist, Lee’s Summit School District, Missouri

On January 8, 2015 the Alliance for Excellent Education hosted a webinar in its Project 24 leadership series. Project 24 is a systemic planning framework around the effective use of technology and digital learning to achieve the goal of college and career readiness for all students. This webinar focused on one of the most important aspects of school transformation: personalized professional learning.

For years, the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to professional learning has been prevalent in schools across the nation. Educators are often brought into large group rooms and a “sit and get” model of professional learning is utilized. Quite often, educators are left feeling frustrated and districts wonder why there is little evidence of impact in a traditional model. In recent years, the concept of educators being empowered to take charge of their own professional learning has gained momentum.

During the webinar, Tom Murray, Steven Anderson, and Kyle Pace discussed:

  • The importance of personalized, professional learning
  • The ability for educators to connect globally and take charge of their own learning
  • Professional learning in a Future Ready School.

Mr. Anderson and Mr. Pace are recognized experts in the area of connected and professional learning. Panelists also took questions from webinar viewers and shared ideas for making personalized professional learning not just something to discuss, but something to act upon.

    I agree teachers should be able to get PD credit for various forms of learning outside of the traditional classroom setting. Can you share some criteria to help establish some framework for meaningful personalized learning and how much credit that should transfer into?
