Learning Forward's Standards for Professional Learning outline the characteristics of professional learning that lead to effective teaching practices, supportive leadership, and improved student results. Learning Forward has now taken the Standards for Professional Learning and added more than 50 interactive tools and videos that will help you build your own mastery of the standards and then share them with others.

Developed in collaboration with 40 professional associations and education organizations, the standards make explicit that the purpose of professional learning is for educators to develop the knowledge, skills, practices, and dispositions they need to help students perform at higher levels.

Videos and interactive tools bring the standards to life in this book for the iPad. These digital extras take you from theory to practice as successful practitioners share their real-world examples of the standards in action.

After you have used the dozens of tools and interactive elements, you’ll also find special links to related professional learning resources from Learning Forward. 

With this book, exclusively available for the iPad, Learning Forward breaks down the walls of isolation. Practitioners can see what others are doing and how they bring best practices to life. Read, annotate, learn, and then share with others, using email or social media. 

This is a tool designed to support 21st century learning for 21st century practitioners. Whether you are new to the standards or well versed, there are tools and resources in this e-book for everyone. 

It’s all right here at your fingertips, so no matter where you go, Learning Forward is there to support you.
