I Took a PD Course and All I Got Was This Stupid Certificate

This is actually excerpted from Bill Ferriter’s full post on the same subject, linked within the post.

via Teaching Now:

Is it fair to ask teachers to implement differentiated learning for their students when many school systems don’t customize professional development learning experiences for their teachers? Bill Ferriter explores this topic in his latest blog post in The Tempered Radical, in which he argues that “learning isn’t the priority for most teacher professional development programs.”

Ferriter, a 6th grade language arts teacher and veteran when it comes to technology integration, recalls a “bizarre” moment in his professional career when he was required to take beginner technology lessons in order to fulfill the PD credits required to renew his teaching license in North Carolina.
