Marketers, publishers, analysts, and industry consultants are invited to join Simba Information and MCH Strategic Data for a free webinar on October 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM Eastern to learn about the current status and potential of professional development for PreK-12 educators, particularly in the framework of the implementation of Common Core State Standards, new teacher-evaluation and accountability programs, as well as integration of technology into the learning process.
Kathy Mickey, Senior Analyst and Managing Editor of the Education Group at Simba Information, will present an overview of the professional development survey including market size, current spending, projected growth, major funding sources, and trends on district implementation.
Ruth Paine, Distance Learning Specialist for the Clay County, Florida School District, will share her efforts in facilitating the delivery of professional development at the Teacher Training Center (TTC) and the Clay Virtual Academy (CVA). Ruth will also be discussing how her district is leaning away from face-to-face training and towards online collaborative professional development.
The information presented is drawn from a recent market research survey conducted by MCH Strategic Data and Simba Information and the expanded analysis included in Simba Information’s new report PreK-12 Professional Development Market Forecast, 2012-2013.
In this webinar you’ll discover:
