When you type in your PD 360 login name and password, you don’t simply enter a website. PD 360 is a portal to the largest network of the world’s most innovative leaders in education.
Your time is precious—unending stacks of ungraded homework and tests do not respect the time it also takes to plan lessons, perform hall duty, attend meetings, commute to and from school, work out personal aspects of life, and a multitude of other demands on your time. Professional development, then, is as difficult to fit into your schedule as it is to follow, carry out, and report.
PD 360 and the on-demand suite of professional learning tools gives you better PD opportunities, fits into an already-packed schedule, and goes with you anywhere you may be.
When you sign into PD 360, you immediately have 120 experts training on 117 topics with more than 3,500 real classroom examples of best practices in over 1,800 training segments—and that’s just the beginning. PD 360 is home to the world’s largest online professional learning community with over 720,000 verified educators just like you. Use the community to collaborate on specific topics, share documents and files, discuss successful teaching strategies, create and join both public and private groups, and form a common language around even the most vexing challenges. You have it all, and you have it only on the PD 360 platform.
PD 360 is also seamlessly integrated with Observation 360, the only classroom walkthrough tool available with prescriptive technology and complete integration with a professional learning platform. Observation 360 is fully customizable and provides effective training, automatic reporting, and camera observation solutions in conjunction with efficient classroom walkthrough resources.
Take PD 360 and Observation 360 with you on your mobile device with the mobile apps available from School Improvement Network. The apps synchronize with your PD 360 account and keep a real-time record of the training you have received while at the gym, on the metro, or wherever you may be.
PD 360 also hosts Common Core 360, the most comprehensive on-demand professional learning resource available. Common Core 360 provides a growing library of real classroom examples of Common Core curriculum alignment, along with the Learning Progression Tool that gives you an unprecedented view and understanding of the Common Core State Standards.
