      Professional Development for Educators:
      This Week at Tapped In (July 4-10)
      Vision: Transforming teacher professional development online
      Research has shown that student achievement is directly linked to
      teacher quality. State and national teaching standards provide a
      framework for teachers' professional growth that requires teachers to
      engage in ongoing professional development throughout their careers.
      The increasing demand for continuous professional development means
      that providers must expand face-to-face programs to include online
      activities and content that engage teachers anytime, anywhere. The
      growing recognition that no single organization can satisfy teachers'
      ongoing professional development needs requires that educators and
      providers form communities to share strategies, resources, and
      support. Tapped In was developed to support this vision.
      Tapped In Learning Hub Professional Development Series - This
      continuing series of events is intended to provide a support system
      for educators who are not sure how to integrate technology into their
      curriculum. Tapped In will serve as the Learning Hub for this
      collaborative journey.
