Abstract

The Worldwide Innovative Schools Program (ISP) is a Microsoft Partners in Learning initiative that seeks to support teachers around the world as they transform traditional schools into providers of innovative learning experiences that prepare students for the 21st century. The authors of this paper were the national evaluators of the ISP in Ireland. The focus of the ISP in Ireland was placed on the integration of digital technologies into teaching and learning in the post primary sector. The primary objective was to design a school-focused, job-embedded, sustainable framework for the professional development of the teachers in a post-primary school. In this paper, we describe the development of a sustainable professional development framework for teachers in Ireland and the progress they have made to move from a very traditional structure toward “innovation.”
