Impacting Learning Environments from PreKindergarten through Graduate School: Technologically Appropriate Professional Development and Classroom Integration Opportunities for Educators.
Crawford, Caroline M.
Professional development has historically been a "one-shot" workshop wherein information barrages the learner in a streaming fashion and little to no information is retained. Even more exasperating is the lack of follow-up support once the workshops have concluded. Due to the desire for technologically appropriate professional development and classroom integration opportunities for educators from the PreKindergarten through graduate school levels, a renewed emphasis upon impacting the learning environments through technologically appropriate professional development and classroom integration opportunities for educators has become an exciting area of growth. This article outlines a pilot study wherein professional development opportunities lead the way towards a highly interactive, supportive learning environment. (Author)
