  • Here's a teacher professional development idea that I hadn't heard of before. And it comes in three-minute chunks called Lessoncasts.

    Liana HeitinLessonCasts: Flipped PD for Teachers, ED Week

  • Teachers should be creating their own Lessoncasts to share with one another. School leaders hired the teachers in their district because they were the most creative and best qualified professionals that they interviewed… In every district, there are numerous very creative teachers. They should be sharing their knowledge!
