Connected PD offers “community-sourced” Open PD for teacher professional development. We believe that NROC’s Connected PD project is in a very good place to incubate a new model we are calling Open PD.
• Open PD embraces a variety of channels for anytime/anywhere participation.
• Open PD gives educators the support to design and drive their own PD.
• Open PD supports educators in scaffolding and mentoring each other via live Twiter chats, hangouts, webinars and tool jams.
• Open PD facilitates curation, sharing and social authoring of OER amongst educators.
