Crowdsourcing Professional Learning to Amplify Educator Voice

Session 6: 2:45-3:45 PM (Thursday March 03, 2022)



This presentation will provide a framework of how teachers, schools, and districts can crowdsource their own organizations and the greater educational community to help create professional learning resources. Beyond creating professional learning resources, we want to demonstrate through this process how schools and districts can provide opportunities to amplify teacher voice and agency. By having teachers within an organization or online community platform, they are able to share many strategies and integrations that are game-changing. Ultimately, we will show in this presentation a step-by-step process of recruiting, formulating outlines for teachers to research, and developing, editing and curating their work. Finally, we will show how to amplify educator work through the connections we make in our professional learning networks.
