The Partners in Learning Network launched some exciting new features last week.
There are two features in particluar I would like to call out:
The new Teaching with Technology curriculum helps any teacher develop the knowledge and skills needed to integrate ICT into their teaching, which is critical to helping students develop 21st century skills. This supports professional development whether you are a school leader or a classroom educator. The curriculum provides the opportunity to take a number of courses and includes a self-assessment in order for you to develop a personalised learning path. When you have completed and passed all six courses, you will automatically be awarded the Teaching with Technology badge.
Another new feature is the ability to Earn Badges, the Partners in Learning Network awards badges for the skills and knowledge that are learned and shared through our online professional learning community. Microsoft believes your achievements should be recognised so that you can share your accomplishments and knowledge with your colleagues and communities.
