Description

Learning in networks is receiving increased attention in Dutch primary education. It is perceived as a way to stimulate teachers professional development (Meijs, Prinsen, & De Laat, 2013; Vaessen, Beemt, & De Laat, 2014) and to provide teachers with the opportunity to regulate their own professional development in line with their professional needs (De Laat & Schreurs, 2013). In education, such alignment is particularly important since teachers often perceive their professional development as unrelated to their classroom practice (Lieberman & Pointer Mace, 2008). Adopting networked learning as a form of teacher professional development influences the teachers perspective on learning and his teaching in the classroom.
