"All school staff benefit from engagement with Continuous Professional Development (CPD) – keeping up to date in their subject and curriculum area, and in teaching approaches and methods. Web and mobile based technologies have changed the landscape for school staff in terms of how they can connect to other educators both locally and across the globe. Personal Learning Networks (PLN), developed and managed by educators, allow school staff to discover, discuss and share relevant ideas, resources and approaches. The Technology supported Professional Development strand focuses on how educators can and are making use of technology to take their practice forward."
