ISTE would like your opinion on schools sacrificing class time for professional development. Experience in front of a classroom is obviously crucial to becoming an effective educator, but adopting emerging educational technologies and learning other classroom skills frequently demand that educators take time off from work to attend seminars, webinars, networking sessions and sabbaticals. Should schools support, condone and/or request that educators take time away from the classroom for professional development? There are a number of reasons to vote “yes” or “no” so please leave a comment on the linked post
that speaks to why you voted for or against this.
