Web 2.0: An Innovative Model for Online Professional Development
The NC 1:1 Learning Collaborative at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation has implemented an innovative online professional development (PD) model using the latest Web 2.0 tools. This presentation highlights how to leverage Web 2.0 for online PD, and provides recommendations on implementing a collaborative, sustained, paperless online PD model.
Target Audience:  K-12, Administration
Sherry Booth, NC State University/The Friday Institute
Lisa Hervey, NC State University/The Friday Institute
Sophia Stone, North Carolina State University/Friday Institute

Our professional development (PD) model uses the TPACK Framework (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) as a guide in the development, implementation and facilitation of our onlline and face-to-face learning experiences.

We hold an annual 3 day long Summer Leadership Institute (SLI) for administrators, instructional technology facilitators and teachers practicing in the North Carolina Learning and Technology Initiative (NCLTI). Here is the wiki that was used to conduct SLI in 2010.  Here is a content specific strand of the same SLI. In addition to the SLI, the 1:1 Collaborative offers ongoing professional development specifically designed for administrators at the Winter Leadership Institutes and for instructional technology facilitators at the Technology Leadership Institutes. Finally, we provide site-based content area specific professional development to schools participating in the NCTLI.  We encourage and invite participants attending these institute to continue their discussions and collaborative relationships in our NC 1:1 Ning. We extend our professional development through several online course offerings that are developed and facilitated by the 1:1 Collaborative team.  The Innovate to Transform the 1:1 Classroom with Web 2.0 Tools course is in session right now.
