Title: Choose Your Own Video

Fred’s Short Story: I believe in the power of educating the whole learner. My career as a teacher, a regional coordinator of science, and assistant director of curriculum has been focused on promoting relevance in learning; if we don’t care about it, then why learn it? I am a learner first, and a leader second.

Fred’s Idea in a Nutshell: Imagine if you had choice in the pathways that your virtual PD took, similar to the choice you had in a Choose Your Own Adventure book.
