Empowering Teachers as Leaders and Learners
The staff from the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd want to share the strategies that Teacher Practice Networks (TPN) grantees have developed for empowering teachers as leaders and learners with as many educators and organizations as possible. That’s why they have their hearts set on taking a panel of TPN representatives to SXSWedu 2016 in Austin, Texas. But before they can pack their bags, they have to be voted in! To show your support and interest in learning more about the work of the great folks of TPN, watch a video about their proposed presentation and cast your vote by giving it a “thumbs up!”
We know that learning is social, but many teachers still work in isolation. The CFTL team is passionate about sharing what they know about the urgent need to support isolated teachers and how technology is bridging the gaps. Their Empowering Teachers as Leaders and Learners panel features three organizations that use digital strategies including virtual coaching, teacher to teacher networking, and online professional learning communities to empower their teachers and address professional isolation.
