Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize and describe the key characteristics of a model for technology-mediated professional learning (TMPL) for teachers that capitalizes on the affordances of our digital age while fostering a culture of professional inquiry and discernment. We surveyed the field through the lens of appreciative inquiry to identify what is working well with an eye to conceptualizing what type of model would be effective in the years ahead. Based on our review of the literature, we offer three guiding principles -- focus on people, gather evidence and foster a critically discriminating professional community -- that could form a valuable basis for the future development of TMPL.
