Teachers Say They will Learn Online

A recent survey of over 2,000 kindergarten through grade 12 teachers indicates that they are willing to participate in online professional development experiences.

Their most preferred method of instruction is in-district workshops (84%), but 69% also indicated that they were use online professional development experiences.

The survey also indicated that their greatest needs were regarding instructional skills (35%) and classroom management (25%). Both of these topics were an especially high priority among teachers with less than 5 years of experience.

There are lots of educational blogs, but are their lots of online professional development experiences for teachers?
