Over the last three years, the Vermont PLN has held numerous professional learning opportunities for Vermont educators that have been videotaped, and the results are 35 Video Learning Modules from Series that include video clips, facilitator guides, handouts and slides that help to share the learning with a wider Vermont audience. Many Vermont educators have already taken advantage of this opportunity and have been extremely pleased.
