Webinar Description


We know that you've experienced another “year unlike any other”, so PDx is designed to be flexible and accessible for you. Participate when you can and take a break when you need to. Either way, we'll be here to support your professional growth.

WHAT IS Podcast PDx?

PDx is Professional Development (PD) by (x) podcast. It is a fancy, simplified term for saying that you are receiving professional development in the form of a podcast. The podcast you'll be engaging with will be the LLCN Brief which includes discussions around current research to help listeners enhance practice and improve literacy. This podcast is hosted by Kent ISD's Mark Raffler (Literacy Consultant) and Sarah Shoemaker (Early Literacy Coach) and their special guests.


PDx is designed for educators who have a demanding schedule and want to stay on top of trends and topics in educational technology and earn SCECH credits.
