Right now, there are not many professional development opportunities that can happen without a device. Being forced to join a Zoom Call or Google Meet, we are reliant on technology to bridge the social gathering divide.
So, how can you disconnect in order to connect?
It’s time to try Device-Free PD. There is only one rule that needs to be followed. You guessed it. No devices.
Any PD goes, as long as it’s device free.
Socially distanced conversation with a colleague? Perfect!
Reading a new book which will help you improve? Great!
Writing in a Reflection/Planning Journal once a week? Why not!
No devices. No problem. Get your learning on anyway.
What kind of Device-Free PD do you take part in or could you take part in?
