I heard about this great professional development activity from Matt Miller, the author of “Ditch that Textbook.” It is a nine-day, FREE virtual event that brings together some of the brightest minds in education to discuss technology, pedagogy and more.
There is a new video released each day, and you can watch them online, on your own time. Plus, each session has downloadable notes, and you can receive PD credit for each session you watched. I’ve been watching the videos and there has been some great stuff. So far, I’ve viewed “Where Technology and Pedagogy Collide” with Tanya Avrith and Holly Clark, authors of The Google-Infused Classroom, “The Science of Happiness for Teachers and Students” with Kim Strobel, a Happiness Coach, and “Brain-Friendly Learning That Works” with Dr. Pooja Agarwal, a Cognitive Scientist, and former K-12 Teacher. All of the sessions so far have been excellent!
If you’re interested, you’d better hurry, as the videos are only available until December 31st. You can visit http://ditchsummit.com/ to register and view the videos.
