3 Things School Districts Should Focus On During Summertime Professional Development

Summer PD Topics

In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Susan talk about using lessons learned from the school year to design effective summertime professional development.

3 Things School Districts Should Focus On During Summertime Professional Development

Start with the Basics and Build From There

  • What was already in place that new teachers may not have been fully aware of?
  • What was in place that your teachers may need further clarified to better succeed?

Don’t forget about your advanced users

  • Build capacity among your advanced users. Equip them to support some of your basic users.
  • Collaborative sharing space to contribute new ideas or innovative activities that have worked for them.

Focus on the Why, When, and How … not just the WHAT

  • What happened this year to help you guide your PD plans? 
  • How has your PD plan changed from what you may have previously had planned? Why did these events affect your plan?
