As the Media Resource Specialist, or Librarian, I love that I can help students of ALL ages learn and grow and this includes the teachers, staff and administration. I know that this group of learners is very busy, with diverse needs and levels of comfort with technology. With this in mind I act as a formal presenter of staff development, a resource for help as needed, a coach for professional development. I work with teachers to meet their needs individually, and as a team/small group. I have presented numerous times to the entire staff of my school and also planned and presented entire district professional development.
Examples of staff development:
Sometimes professional development needs to be short and simple and presented during teachers only downtime.
Quick, in person technology professional development based on teacher survey of needs/wants.
Whole group, formal PD, presented at staff meeting.
