Governments, institutions, and schools around the world are seeking ways to ensure students leave with the skills they need to be successful in today's knowledge-based economy. Research shows that innovative teaching practices, combined with technology are two key factors that lead to students' acquisition of 21st century skills. Yet how do we scaffold professional development in a way that supports teachers and school leaders on that path to innovation? How can we support them so that technology is integrated into their daily practice?
