Abstract

This case study describes the evolution of a teacher professional development project for digital literacy. The goal of this teacher professional development project is to support teachers’ effective use of technology and professional learning in an ICT-based learning environment by creating a professional learning network (PLN). The case suggests that the situated, collaborative learning environment of this PLN provided supportive affordance to improve teachers’ use of technology and professional learning. In addition, we highlight teachers’ voice as an important element to sustain the effectiveness of the PLN.
