Wouldn't it be incredible if we could give the keys to professional development to ourselves and our teachers? In an iconic TV moment, Oprah Winfrey gave cars away to the entire studio audience composed of people who were in desperate need of a car.

In education today, professional development is experiencing a renaissance. The internet has allowed educators to take ownership of their own professional development, building relationships and sharing best practices via blogs as well as social media platforms like Twitter, Voxer, and Facebook. In addition, rather than dictating sit-and-get, one-size-fits-all style professional development, schools and districts are experimenting with personalized professional development.

In this session, you will hear one school's story to offer up personalized professional development to its staff members. Resources and strategies will be shared to bring personalized PD back to your site or district. Imagine teachers opening a little box and realizing they have been given the keys to their own growth and the opportunity to go explore their own passions!
