From adversity comes opportunity. In this case the dwindling dollars for teacher professional development is pushing more organizations to move to online PD as shown in the Edweek article - Education Schools Playing Online PD Catch-up. (hat tip to Michael Horn tweet on this)
Great to see that Ed Schools are getting in the game. Here at LTF, it is the first think I focused on for our amazing teachers - getting them online support to augment our live training. We can't charge more for the online component because school districts have no money, but it does give our teachers are great resource they can use any time they need it.
That is why I brought the LTF academic team to iNACOL - so we can push the envelope in online learning for teachers.
