What is #cyberPD?
#cyberPD is a virtual book talk that takes place each July. The event began in 2011 as a result of a conversation between Jill Fisch, Laura Komos and Cathy Mere. As we were talking about professional books for our summer reading, we realized we had many titles in common in our book stacks. We wished we could sit around and chat about the books, but we lived too far apart. We decided we could have our book talk virtually across our blogs and asked others to join us. In 2014 Michelle Nero joined our organizational team. Since #cyberPD's first event we've grown from a group of less than 15 to a community of nearly 150 educators.
Since 2011, #cyberPD has been an event to connect educators in collaborative professional conversation. Through blogs, Twitter, and the digital media, participants share thinking around a common professional title featured for discussion. Though the main event is in July of each year, the conversations and connections carry across the year. Join us!
