Abstract

Students grow up with technology and don't think about integrating technology into their lives. There is a disconnect between lived reality and school reality for both students and teachers. To address this disconnect, educators need convenient, relevant professional learning opportunities throughout their career. A Canadian project called Advanced Broadband Enabled Learning (ABEL) is a unique model for technology mediated, job-embedded professional development for educators. Supported by educational, private sector and government partners, ABEL engages a new culture for teaching and learning through the use of broadband networks and information communications technology. ABEL incorporates accredited professional learning with engaging resources in a collaborative learning environment that is focused on enhancing student learning.
