“Participate in Your Own PD”
Presenter: Brad Spirrison

We are very excited to be able to welcome back Brad Spirrison as our special guest presenter with some exciting updates on Participate . Professional development in the digital age is participatory in nature. Brad Spirrison returns to Classroom 2.0 LIVE to discuss how Participate helps educators define and engage in their own professional development through peer collaboration and review, and access to compelling resources.

Learn how Participate helps educators curate resources and ideas exchanged through chats, and host online courses, including topics such as global education and Edcamps. A proud B Corporation, Participate partners with schools, districts and educational organizations to rethink professional development, host blended learning courses and programs and provide ways to showcase and recognize new competencies learned.

Brad Spirrison is the Director of Platform Innovation with Participate. He holds a M.A. in Communication/Media Ecology from New York University’s School of Education, with a focus on the role in media and technology in early childhood education. He is a Chicago-based media expert and analyst who has served as a regular contributor to ABC News, TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, NPR and dozens of other broadcast, print and new media outlets.
