"Implementation" Learning

How might we take the focus off of the input of professional learning, and shift it to the output (aka IMPLEMENTATION!) of what is learned?

We spend A LOT of time planning, attending, paying for, being "at" professional development. What would it look like if the same level of resource were applied to "Implementation Learning" - figuring out how to support the implementation of a concept, a skill etc. in classrooms?? Move away from Professional Learning...to Implementation Learning. What does that practice look like?

Yes Yes Yes.
that should be the point of PD anyways right!!!!!

Love the implementation focus!!!!!!! Don't just tell me about it - lets try it - lets do it - lets test it, make it better - and try again!!!!!!

Mickey, if you were asked to implement something from your most recent PD experience in your classroom - TOMORROW - with no extra preparation - just the willingness to try something new - how would you go about doing it?
