Participatory Models of Professional Development

Principal Investigator:
Henry Jenkins

This working group brings together those who are designing, developing and implementing professional development to support teachers in understanding the affordances of digital media in learning. Our long-term hope is to seed the foundation of a Digital teacher Corps movement by culminating a collection of case studies exemplifying models of participatory professional development. Instead of working in silos on the same issue, coming together as a collaborative – comprised of researchers, teachers and school administrators – will foster a discussion of how to scale and sustain these participatory educational models across all grade levels and disciplines.
