      Web Tools Newsletter
      Online Communities for Professional Development

      "As Information and Communication Technologies become inextricably
      bound to the way things work, educators find themselves caught up in
      a continuing cycle of keeping up with new developments and developing
      ways of making best use of them in their professional practices.
      Inevitably, teacher professional development(TPD) strategies draw on
      innovative solutions presented by the ICTs, and so the cycle goes
      on...

      Educators have a longstanding tradition of pursuing professional
      development through various levels of collaboration within
      communities of practice - the emergence of online versions, often
      known as online learning communities, is a natural extension of the
      strategy.

      In this week's Web Tools Newsletter, we look at rationales for the
      development of such communities, best practices and successful
      examples in the field, some assessments of effectiveness, and
      directions for the future."

      There follows a very densely hyperlinked document that should absorb
      an afternoon or two, maybe even an evening. Enjoy,

      Vance
