Using social networks and media to support our continuing professional development
About the webinar
Many teachers have found that social networks and media can provide valuable support for their continuing professional development. However, knowing where to start can be a problem. Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere aren't always easy places to move in and it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the multitude of posts that appear and disappear in rapid succession. How can we make sense of them and identify the people we can most learn from? How do we set ourselves goals and keep track of where we're going? Recorded in 2011, this webinar considers practical ways of centring and organising ourselves to make the process a little less chaotic.
