Webinar Date: August 25, 2017
Next-generation learning is driving transformational changes in how teachers are teaching – redefining the traditional educator role, skill, and mindset required to raise student achievement. To meet the needs of all learners, the future of teacher PD is mirroring that of student learning: empowering agency and voice by focusing on evidence-based, relevant, and personalized learning experiences.
In this webinar, presenters Natalie Crist, supervisor of elementary mathematics at Baltimore County Public Schools, Jessica Osipowicz, mathematics resource teacher at Baltimore County Public Schools, and Kelly Urlacher, senior curriculum designer at DreamBox, discuss the path to next-generation professional development, including:
