New and better. Some more.

Oh you know, just sitting here learning stuff, using Tweetdeck.  Happened to be following an event at the White House focused on #nextgenpl and caught, out of the corner of my eye, a worldwide professional learning event called Education on Air: It Takes a Teacher.  Well, thinking in terms of old style professional development…this ain’t it.  No ‘expert’ person is winging into develop us.  We aren’t paying for airfare and hotels somewhere.  We are joining in a conversation and learning based upon our interests and our choices from the comfort of our homes.  On a Saturday, at our convenience.

If innovation means making something that is ‘new and better’, I believe this is a powerful example of an innovative mode of professional learning.  I also believe there will continue to be more and more professional learning just like this.

I can’t wait!
