All over the world novice and experienced teachers ask, "How can I improve my practice?" The answer to this question is through professional learning in the form of action research and technology. Universities can facilitate this process through post baccalaureate (alternative) certification programs that fold into Master's degree programs. One Northeastern university in Texas will discuss teachers' use of technology to enable action research, as a primary tool to help them investigate, collaborate, analyze and improve classroom practice.
