Learnink Professional Learning

professional learning for you + your students

connecting your learning to the resources you need

opportunities:

  • technology can extend the range of resources teachers can offer their students

challenges:

  • internet communications and content are more dynamic than textbooks, but often less-structured and not always at all well-designed as learning resources

solutions:

  • teachers and students build an active-learning context to question, select and evaluate information they find to provide authentic meaning and a currency to their learning.

using technology tools:

  • learn from and with your colleagues and students
  • ask for help – mistakes are an opportunity to learn
  • your attitude to change affects your students’ attitudes
  • embrace change and change will embrace you!
