Voice & Choice – Giving Priority to Professional Learning

The time is now to re-envision professional learning, not professional development. Normal PD rarely works, before the pandemic or now, if it resembles the all district “cattle calls.” We must lose the district-driven mandates in order to bring back personal learning and joy for teachers. Many teachers seek out their own learning opportunities, but what if a district were to value and respect teachers’ voice and choice in prioritizing optimal learning times, and modes? Promethean Professional Learning solutions can do just that! Learn how a team of Education Consultants and a plethora of online resources can help you maximize your teachers’ engagement while empowering their own voice and choice in their professional learning.
