Imagine that

David Warlick’s March 23 post stated:
I’m going to close here by mentioning that the technology mentors are doing something that I haven’t seen before for professional development. They come into a school with three substitute teachers (they call them supply teachers). They go to the classrooms of teachers who have expressed an interest in learning some specific technology skill or piece of software. They drop off the substitute and then take the teacher(s) to the PD lab for an hour or so of training. What strikes me about this procedure is not just that it is incredibly efficient, but it also sends the message that professional development is part of the job. It isn’t something that happens after work, on weekends, and during the summer. But it is important enough that it is part of your work day.

Imagine that.
