Transcript of SXSWedu2017 Next Gen Professional Learning
the impact of any other school factor, including services, facilities, and even leadership
The mindset that a classroom teacher's roles and responsibilities are limited to
assessing student learning
managing the classroom environment
The “old way” does not take into account the innovative learning models being implemented in today’s classrooms
Successful educators in a personalized, learner-centered setting should be able to:
Utilize in-depth understanding of content and learning progressions to engage learners and lead individual learners toward mastery.
Have knowledge of the sub-skills involved in effective communication and apply it to instructional strategies that develop learners into effective communicators.
Demonstrate an orientation toward and commitment to a personalized, learner-centered vision for teaching and learning.
Facilitate and prioritize shifting to and maintaining a learner-centered culture.
Engage in deliberate practices of adapting and modeling persistence and a growth mindset.
Demonstrate an orientation toward and commitment to lifelong professional learning.
Analyze evidence to improve personal practices.
Design, strengthen, and participate in positive learning environments that support individual and collaborative learning.
Build strong relationships that contribute to individual and collective success.
Use a mastery approach to learning.
Seek appropriate individual or shared leadership roles to continue professional growth, advancement, and increasing responsibility for student learning and advancement.
Use assessment and data as tools for learning.
Customize the learning experience.
Promote student agency and ownership with regard to learning.
Develop and facilitate project-based learning experiences.
Use technology in service of learning.

By focusing on evidence of learning, rather than the place where that learning occurs, Next Gen Professional Learning acknowledges that educators will learn new skills in a variety of formal and informal contexts over the course of their careers
To take full advantage of these opportunities, teachers need new ways to document, share and be recognized for what they learn, including using these new methods
We want to hear from you! What should Next Gen Professional Learning look like?
Co-teaching (master teachers paired with new teachers)
Collaborative inquiry (professional learning communities
These opportunities could include:
