Increasingly, teachers are expected to be all things to all people: consistently relevant, engaging, with up-to-date resources and creative and innovative classroom practices, but how can busy teachers achieve the professional development necessary to meet these lofty expectations? Answer: Professional Learning Communities. Online Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) offer educators the ability to organically develop or extend their existing learning networks. Importantly, these PLCs are cultivated by individual teachers, giving the communities the focus and flexibility needed to help ensure individualized success. Through the use of tools such as Twitter, Google Reader, RSS, Diigo and blogs, teachers can access up-to-date and relevant resources and experiences that have been filtered and vetted by their own network. These PLCs are open all hours, so finding inspiration is possible any time of day or night. Anticipated learning outcomes: Guidance and assistance in developing a personalised PLC Opportunities for global collaboration Exposure to different perspectives A commitment to keeping it real creating a manageable workflow for busy educators Audience: This would suit teachers of any age group/subject area, but especially those who have yet to embark on a significant online presence.
