Professional Learning for educators can be a challenge to deliver to educators. Many of us have experienced bad sessions along with wonderful sessions. When it comes to delivering training on integrating technology into the classroom, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. No two educators have the same skill set when it comes to using technology. My innovation plan is to personalize professional learning where educators can choose which application they wish to learn more about, then work with a group of teachers on ways to use it in their classrooms.
