The Viability of Online Education for Professional Development
Carr, Vivienne B.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v7 n3 p6-15 Fall 2010
Information technology is influencing continuing education for K-12 administrators and in-service teachers, especially with regard to asynchronous education for professional development. Implementation of instructional technology applications has required a major restructuring of the learning environment. The restructuring has included the use of computer software applications to introduce new pedagogies; enhanced electronic communications; multimedia and video graphics; wireless and mobile technology; and importantly, Internet-based education. This is causing faculty to make changes in their teaching approach to afford opportunities beyond the traditional classroom in a unique and accessible way. This case study reveals that the implementation of online technology-based curriculum not only fosters learning but offers a multifaceted experience for administrators and teachers to capitalize upon professional development opportunities.
