Professional Development for 21st Century Literacies

Blogging from the eTech Ohio Conference. Today I gave a presentation with two of my colleagues on "Assessment, Value-Added, and Web 2.0: Putting it all Together."

Our message was that in today's educational environment of NCLB and the value-added roll-out in Ohio, along with the demands of preparing students with 21st century literacy skills, schools need professional development that is embedded into instruction and provides for the creation of professional learning communities.

I'm finding it super exciting to be involved in professional development for schools, and am looking forward to many of the sessions being held tomorrow.
