Teachers as Learners

“For designers of professional development opportunities, teachers must be respected as learners. Teachers need to be treated as designers of learning environments, not merely agents enacting a vision, following a prescription for pedagogy. Teachers need to be treated as co-designers of their learning experiences in professional development. The ScratchEd approach is to create opportunities for teachers to engage in the same designing, personalizing, sharing, and reflecting activities that are essential for young people as designers of interactive media.” – Karen Brennan
