Dr. Diane Reed - CaseNEX - Using Case Studies for Dynamic Professional Development


Microsoft, as part of its Partners in Learning Program, elected to do case studies in order to create a body of work to support professional development and growth for educators across the country. In collaboration with CaseNEX, a series of 16 case studies have been developed and are ready for use, free of charge, for all educators. Each case study contains video of unique issues, perspectives, and actions related to technology and high school reform. In today's schools, teachers and leaders must have the knowledge to promote 21st-Century teaching and learning. These case studies and professional development modules provide flexible options for schools and districts focusing on 21st-century learning, through classroom technology use and school-wide reform. This inter-active session will introduce participants to these cases studies and modules and introduce the CaseNEX problem solving model. Participants will discuss in groups how they can use these materials in their own schools.
