Technology has changed what it means for learning communities to "be
together." Digital tools are now an important part of teaching, learning,
and professional development. But how do you keep pace with it all?

<http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/discussions/professionaldevelopment/10onlinepartI

and how they may be used in teaching and professional development. Then sign

Small groups then share back what they learned with the Technology and
Professional Development Lists.
