Recent research has shown that teachers are resilient and proactive in the face of curriculum change (Hidson, 2018). We offer an exciting fast-track to the technologies most likely to offer impactful self-directed professional learning. We will start with an overview of key CPD strands available at the BETT show, highlighting the possibilities afforded by generic types of technology, before plotting a thematic route through a selection of products and services that provide CPD opportunities including micro-learning through video tutorials, developing communities of practice through social media and the use of edtech both inside and outside of the classroom. Other findings relate to web-enabled video technology to build professional capital through reflective practice, coaching and collaboration and e-portfolios for initial teacher education that help teachers to identify and address developmental needs, whilst helping course providers to support and monitor their progress.
