EdTech for Teacher Training and Development

Most EdTech is positioned toward students: courses, apps and other tools to help young people learn particular topics. But what can ed tech do to improve the ongoing learning experience of teachers? This talk will focus on the potential of online courses to help teachers continue their own learning. In particular, it will look at how online courses can enable cross-disciplinary conversations, increase the diversity of voices, and allow teachers to personalise their professional training.

What will you get out of this session?
An introduction to online courses for teacher training; the theory and pedagogy of social learning; benefits of social learning for teacher CPD.
