Given time restraints, responsibilities, etc., how can YOU reinvent professional development during the year? Think through the lens of "Moonshot Thinking", list your solutions here. How can you use this model to reinvent PD in your classroom/school/district? How can this idea start with you?
2
By participating in EdChats on Twitter
3
Collaboration on twitter and the MathTwitterBlogoSphere!!! #ExploreMTBoS
4
Research on my time. Most of us do it anyway! Instead of having a meeting, have time for R&D. Pay for time to collaborate with like minded teachers. To learn our craft.
5
1 day a week where teachers have no students, but work together
6
20 percent time
7
Student response- ask students to create traits of their ideal teacher

8
Ask teachers what they are passionate about learning. Ask them HOW and when they want to learn. Then have them to DO that. (They show evidence of learning by doing.)
9
We would be willing to organize and present PD that is interest driven. We would have to encourage or inspire others to do the same. It would Many formats would need to be interest/need driven: before/after school, goole hangouts, chats, etc....
10
As catch as catch can - Skype with teachers from their desk and other apps.
Use the time you have - early in the morning - maybe through your car on the way to work for people with long commutes.
11
PD and change must come from the inside out- not top down. Unconferences allow for teachers to have meaningful experiences with other educators- and are part of the process- involvement=change
12
Create an edcamp style day for students in a class or school
13
Professional Development should take place in small groups comprised of various grade levels and curriculum teams. This group should be teacher led and researched, and then each individual in the group is responsible for researching and informing the group about a topic of interest.
14
Summer PD from home using meeting/Skype/chat software and Google docs. PD in your PJ's!
15
go there... Experience it in person... A year off campus to travel to... Experience it... Live it....then return to teach it.
16
A sharing board where we are required to submit new ideas or things that are working in our classroom

Sharing what you know and the learning growing through conversation

Grade level...school....district...etc.
17
Send me to the UK to shadow their computer science teachers for a semester.

18
Sabbatical
19
Create a day that students can choose from sessions - each teacher creates a session
20
Hologram speakers... Places...
21
A google classroom for teacher and have something like Apple Genius Bar, where you could contact teachers who are passionate about that subject.
22
Teachers observing teachers (learning from--and providing feedback for--each other): http://www.educationworld.com/a_admin/admin/admin297.shtml
23
specific learning paths designed for teachers like we do for our students, this could include all aspects of teaching & be specific to the needs of that teacher (class mgmt, small group, use of technology, etc.). Teachers could self assessments & could also have input from walk throughs
24
Bill and Ted style
25
I suggest a self selected live classroom "observation" feed that allows us to drop in and learn from those we are curious about and interested in. Imagine having a "gallery" of choice where you could see who is "available for observation" and simply click to join their live feed and learn from them in an area in which you desire to grow.
26
reinvent PD by putting all curriculum and tech together- truly modeling the integration
27

28
Online pd that teachers can participate in on their own time/place, no at school (uunless you want) like learning for teachers. But make it FREE so many good ones cost $
29
edcamp with your students, teachers, admins
30
Unconferences, time for free-thinking collaboration
31
Find the experts and immerse with themInspire; find people/org who will support it
32
Students as teachers
Sponsor group to guide students in a way to be teachers of something they are passionate and knowledgable about
33
Skype in an expert teacher to teach your students
34
Talking with district people that can approve these ideas. Get principals to support the idea. Find the value in the idea and provide support to back the idea with evidence and obtainable goals.
