CT4ME's Math Methodology section provides additional resources on knowledge of students, instructional and assessment practices and curriculum mapping. An Introduction to Professional Development Learning Forward proposed the following definition of professional development: It is actually an ongoing process.
According to Learning Forwardwhich developed the following list of seven Standards for Professional Learning"Professional learning that increases educator effectiveness and results for all students" That pedagogy also includes acquiring knowledge and skills for integrating technology into curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
Carpenter, Blanton, Cobb, Franke, Kaput, and McClain said, "The most critical things that teachers need to learn revolve around content knowledge and the student learning trajectories specific to that knowledge" p. Further, "[l]earning specific content and learning how students learn that content" p.
In order to increase teachers' effectiveness in the classroom, the Panel recommended strengthening the math preparation of elementary and middle school teachers via preservice teacher education, early career support, and professional development programs. Indeed, in its report The Mathematical Education of Teachers II, the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences addressed this area in separate chapters for elementary, middle, and high school teachers.
It made " recommendations for the mathematics that [preK] teachers should know and how they should come to know that mathematics. For example, activities for all teachers could also improve and increase teachers' "ability to analyze student work and achievement from multiple sources, including how to adjust instructional strategies, assessments, and materials based on such analysis" or improve their classroom management skills or advance their understanding of "effective instructional strategies that are evidenced-based.
Resources for professional development include government agencies, the U. Department of Educationyour state Department of Education, school districts, private foundations, corporations and education associations Charp, There are online instructor led and independent study, self-paced courses to satisfy differences in learning styles, and full online degree programs for teacher education.
When attending outside conferences, Rooney noted that colleagues will benefit from a summary of what you learned and copies of relevant handouts. Start your own personal learning network.
Reading publications and journals, membership in teaching organizations, participation in online professional chats and social learning communities e. In terms of this latter, see the videos posted at TED, which is devoted to ideas worth spreading. TED selected " 8 math talks to blow your mind " featuring fractals in African design and the art of roughness, the size of infinity, "Mathemagic," the math of coral, a clever way to estimate enormous numbers, the math of cities and corporations, and the math behind the ugliest music.
These are just a few of the over talks available at TED on math.
You can grow professionally through your own action research, participation in case studies, and reflective discussion. CT4ME's Education Research section will give you a good start on how to conduct your own action research. Need help setting up your personal learning network?
The Innovative Educator provided five steps: Feedly is one example. Gray also includes a list of interesting people to follow on Twitter, but you can also search for math related tweets to find a community you wish to follow. Other resources of interest include the following: AP Teaching Community from The College Board is an online community "where AP teachers discuss teaching strategies, share resources, and connect with each other.
For example, the following are among those that might interest math educators: The site also features free webinars and podcasts.
Future of Education is an interview series and discussion community open to all. A huge benefit is the regular series of interviews with innovative leaders who are making a difference in learning. Called " Ignite Talks ," each playlist includes a series of videos of presentations made by math education leaders.
Each video is about 5 minutes long and sure to inspire. Some are humorous, others serious, and all contribute to your professional development. Tools Curriculum-based professional development "must be intimately tied to the actual tools teachers use" Schmidt,p. Tools exist to help schools and districts to plan, implement, evaluate, and share results from professional development.
Emily Hassel's Professional Development: Learning from the Best is a comprehensive toolkit "based on the experiences of award winning sites of the U. If your school or district is are not sure where to begin professional development, take the ASCD survey online using the ASCD School Improvement Toolwhich is based on the whole child approach to education.
This survey can be completed in about 15 minutes and provides feedback on issues of school climate and culture, family and community engagement, assessment, instructional practices, curriculum development, leadership, and the learning process. Read the Press Release on this tool.

Gray Hat Hacking: The Ethical Hacker's Handbook, Fifth Edition. Allen Harper, Daniel Regalado, Ryan Linn, Stephen Sims, Branko Spasojevic, Linda Martinez, Michael Baucom, Chris Eagle, Shon Harris. White Hat Cracking involves security testing by arrangement. Grey Hat Cracking seeks to identify insecure systems and inform administrators/users of vulnerabilities.
Black Hat Cracking involves accessing systems. If you’re a security or network professional, you already know the “do’s and don’ts”: run AV software and firewalls, lock down your systems, use encryption, watch network traffic, follow best practices, hire expensive consultants but it isn’t working.
