20% Time PD

Recently I wrote about how PD is run in my district. That got me thinking about how can we change that? What do other successful businesses do? What are other districts doing?

I began to wonder what PD would look like if we used Google’s 20% time model? What amazing lessons, innovations, and/or projects would teachers come up with? What exciting experiences would the students be getting? More importantly, how can we begin implementing this?

What it might look like

  • Research our passions
  • Set timelines for projects/lessons/etc.
  • Have a way to showcase our findings
  • Inspire others
  • Enjoy true collaboration with others who share similar interests
  • Happy, respected teachers
  • A district that can document their successes
  • An innovative district

The possibilities are truly endless.
