PART 2 – Free PD – No Cost Professional Development Opportunities for Busy Teachers

This is hands-down the best, most informative and crazy-useful professional development opportunity I’ve ever participated in.

Just like a teacher conference.
Wherever and whenever you want.
(Pajamas and couch optional.)

Matt Miller does an amazing job at–from Google tools podcasts to daily articles and tips for teachers.

But every December, teachers get an added bonus with Ditch Summit.


But the summit is ONLY available for two weeks in December…and then it’s gone forever.

Check out last year’s presenters & topics:
