OpenPD: Round 3 & The Beginning of a New Era

In order to accommodate the schedules of a growing number of interested participants (both inside and outside of the Jordan School District), we have changed the schedule of OpenPD's Round 3, deviating from our original plans.

Round 3: Details

Time: Class will be held once a week (for five weeks) beginning Wednesday, March 26. Class sessions will be held from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time. Click here to translate these times to your time zone.

Place: Click here to participate in the action, here to learn more, and feel free to join in from any Internet-connected computer in the world.

Topic: In Round 3, we hope to continue the discussions that were started in Round 2, focusing more in-depth upon advanced topics related to using wikis and blogs in an educational environment.

Round 3: The Beginning of a New Era?

In previous OpenPD rounds, educators from all around the world joined in with a core group of teachers with whom I met in a face-to-face PD setting. In Round 3, we hope to change that as there will be no formal PD class scheduled for teachers from within my district. It is my hope that teachers within the Jordan School District will participate in the same manner that others outside of the district have - from the comfort of their own buildings - but with the option (not requirement) of attending with me in person.

We'll see how this goes, and if similar PD efforts might be feasible in the near future.
