Report from TWG 3: Teacher professional development

Twining, Peter and Albion, Peter and Knezek, Don (2011) Report from TWG 3: Teacher professional development. In: EDUsummIT 2011: International Summit on Information and Communication Technologies in Education, 8-10 Jun 2011, Paris, France.


Technical Working Group 3 considered teacher professional development for use of information technologies to promote 21st Century Learning in elementary and secondary schools, addressing the following element of the Call to Action from EdusummIT 2009:
To develop and use models for teacher professional development on technology use in schools and classrooms at the pre- and in-service levels
In the group discussions at EdusummIT 2011 it was agreed that the target for action should be refined to focus on teacher professional development for improved learning and teaching through effective use of IT. This refinement highlights the central importance of enhancing learning and teaching and clarifies the focus on the integration of new technologies within all disciplines, rather than being limited to IT/Computing as subjects.
