I missed out on PLD these last holidays...

For some of us accessing PLD in the holidays might not be an option. We may be on holiday, on child duties or might not have access to PLD funds to attend conferences like Ulearn. Thank goodness for technology - now we can catch up with PD in our own time.

For example, in the first keynote at Ulearn15, Grant Lichtman talked about some of his educational observations and conclusions after interviewing more than 600 teachers, administrators, students and parents. A summary of his keynote can be found in the Ulearn news bites including graphic illustrations of his story. The video of his presentation can be found in Edtalks and audience participation and interactions in his keynote can be viewed in this shared Google doc and the Twitter stream @ @GrantLichtman and #ulearn15. Other keynote presentations can be found here>>>.

In some cases, the progress in education is just too good an opportunity to miss and becomes national news, like this clip from Prime News on Technology in schools.


Now we don’t have to feel like we’ve missed out, when there’s so much opportunity to either re-visit these learning experiences of access them for the very first time.

Do you have any learning highlights from these past holidays you want to share with others?

    Some of the best PD during the holiday break for me came from the Connected Educator EdBlogNZ challenge. So many amazing teachers were blogging during the holidays about all sorts of things do with education. Reflections, hot topics, video blogs and more were created and commented on.

    Have a look at some of the great posts that were written and perhaps you'll come away with some great ideas: EdBlogNZ challenge
