My RSCON4 Presi- If you build it, they will come: Flipping Professional Development

By Will Deyamport, III, Ed.D.

Today at 2pm CST, I presented at RSCON, an online global education conference. This was my second time presenting.  I won't bore you with my feelings or try to wow you with my experiences.  I just ask that you check out the video and let me know what you think. I also want you to visit Twitter and connect with folks from RSCON.

  1. Hello Dr. Will!

    My name is Chastity Westry. I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I really enjoyed reading your post and watching your discussion. You provided me with a lot of information that will help me out in the future with my career. I will be sure to visit this blog frequently whenever I begin working with my students.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Dr. Deyamport,
    I loved reading and watching the videos on your blog! You provided me with great information that I can use in my future! Thank you!

  3. Dr. Deyamport,
    I really like your idea of placing professional development on the internet. By using programs like Edmodo, Google Communities, and YouTube you are allowing teachers to access this information on their own time. I also like the idea of having the information readily accessible 24/7. Providing teachers with this form of professional development really encourages them to find a form of technology that works best for them and it also provides them with instructions on how to implement it in their classroom.
    Great presentation!
