This podcast is a recording of my keynote address on April 20, 2007, at the Connecting and Collaborating Conference sponsored by Ottawa Area Intermediate School District in Holland, Michigan. The keynote description was: Professional development is no longer limited by time and space constraints. Conversations and content now accessible via the Internet, the blogosphere, and podcasts are opening up amazing new possibilities for professional development and learning. In this session we’ll explore innovative ways educators around the planet are making connections, creating personal learning networks, and extending their educational knowledge bases. We’ll also look at ways school districts are using collaborative tools and technologies to provide blended professional development to better meet the learning constraints as well as opportunities of our educational and informational environments.
