With version 5.2, educators step even further ahead in their PD opportunities by now being able to participate in professional development absolutely anywhere
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Salt Lake City – November 9, 2011 – Just two months before the launch of PD360’s regular updates comes the much-anticipated PD 360 Mobile application for any iOS (Apple) or Android mobile device.
PD 360 is the world’s first and largest on-demand professional development platform. The online PD training library has 1,800 video segments, but not until now have the training videos been accessible on a mobile device. As more districts begin equipping their educators with iPads and smartphones, a need has arisen for a professional development program that can be accessed from mobile devices. Now that PD360 Mobile has filled that need, teachers and administrators have access to the 120 experts and 117 topics anytime, and anywhere their iPads and smart phones go.
“We originally built PD 360 to provide educators with the maximum access to professional development, and [our competitors] still do not provide access to the quantity or quality we continue to produce.” President and CEO Chet Linton says. “With PD 360 Mobile, educators step even further ahead in their PD opportunities by now being able to participate in professional development absolutely anywhere.”
Administrators and teachers alike will appreciate the synchronization between devices. The mobile app synchronizes with an educators account immediately, so all content viewed on a mobile device appears in the recent history no matter which device one uses. That means that teachers can view material to achieve objectives on the bus or metro, and administrators can follow up on teachers’ progress as it happens.
Educators can also search any of the 1,800 videos on their mobile device, so they do not have to rely on preloaded content. Educators will have complete access to the entire core content wherever and whenever they need it.

The innovative PD 360 videos are unique and class-leading because of the quality of production, and each is research-based with classroom examples of best practices. The videos are also relatively short in nature (approximately 6-12 minutes in length) allowing educators access to “snack-able” content that is easy and accessible to view and implement.
Teachers, administrators, professional learning communities, coaches, mentors, instructional leaders, and paraprofessionals have available at their fingertips hundreds of indexed and searchable video segments that present real, best-practice classroom examples and feature respected education experts, such as Michael Fullan, Rick DuFour, Doug Reeves, Rick Stiggins, and many others. Educators can instantly find the help they need on nearly every topic, including differentiation, assessment, English language learners, leadership, and more. PD 360 can also be used to create a structured learning experience for an individual teacher, a PLC, or even an entire school. PD 360 bridges the gap between training and classroom implementation with job-embedded follow-up, tracking, and reflection tools. PD 360 gives educators access to an online community of teaching professionals that allows interaction and collaboration either within a district or across the United States and the world. PD 360 includes over 1,500 research-based video learning segments and is the most comprehensive web-based library of professional development resources available.
