“Professional Development is the responsibility of the professional, not the institution.” This quote from Will Richardson (@willrich45) has never been more accurate. Social media has provided us with a dynamic range of options for learning and connecting with others. Edcamps and other participant driven PD opportunities give the power back to the learner. Gone are the days of a “lone wolf” AT provider – you now have opportunities to be connected to the world! Learn about ways to develop your PLN (professional learning network) through Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and especially Twitter. In 2016, PD really means “personal development.” Bring your device and be ready to get connected.
