PD3 | Educators

Teachers, Administrators, Service Providers, & Board Trustees

PD3 provides an extensive catalog of professional development topics and titles that extends beyond the minimum requirements as set forth by the New Jersey Department of Education while not sacrificing quality.

Sample PD3 | Educators: NJ Anti-bullying Bill of Rights Update, Part 1

Each course is divided into easy to manage micro-chapters that can be completed over multiple sessions. This provides educators with the flexibility to complete assigned courses over time in a highly efficient manner. Participants are not required to sit for hours at a time in front of a computer screen to meet their professional requirements. Some course chapters are as low five minutes in length, which delivers the overall content in more easily digestible portions.

Sample PD3 | NJ Bloodborne Pathogens Training, Part 1

PD3 is built upon a powerful, proprietary platform that enables school districts to assign, manage, monitor, and record all professional development. Each course concludes with an online assessment that randomizes the order of questions and responses to maintain fidelity. Upon successful completion of the assessment, the user is provided with a PDF of his or her certificate of completion, and the software archives the record and sends an alert to the assigned system administrator.

Sample PD3 | NJ Ethics Act for Administrators, Part 1

PD3 districts benefit from the system’s ability to set a completion date for each assigned course by the user; track each user’s progress in real-time; send auto-alerts and reminders to users and administrators; send notifications to assigned users upon successful or unsuccessful completion of course; and generate user and district-level reports that include the course title, user name, date and time of completion and assessment results. All features result in an exceptionally reliable professional development management system that ensures staff and district accountability.

NJ Human Trafficking Awareness of EducatorsHuman trafficking is modern slavery. It involves exploiting a person through force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of forced labor, commercial sex, or both. Victims of human trafficking include men, women, boys, girls, and transgender individuals lured by the promise of a better life in the United States and adults and children who were born and raised in the United States. Schools can and should be safe havens for students, and even more so for some students whose lives are otherwise characterized by instability and lack of safety or security. In these cases, school personnel are uniquely well positioned to identify and report suspected abuse and connect students to services—actions that can prevent trafficking and even save lives. Everyone who is part of the school community—administrators, teachers, bus drivers, maintenance personnel, food service staff, resource officers, and other school community members—has the potential to be an advocate for child victims of human trafficking, but, first, school community members must learn the indicators of the crime, its warning signs, and how to respond when a student is an apparent victim.

NJ The Changing Transition to AdulthoodThe U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health, in collaboration with the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs and Oregon State University Professor of Human Developmental and Family Sciences Richard Stettersten, Jr., developed a video about the transition to adulthood today, how it has changed over time, what skills and capacities are helpful for youth, and the roles of families, education, and employment in the process. The path from adolescence to adulthood has become a complicated journey filled with uncertainty, shifting social and cultural expectations, growing social inequalities, and difficult economic choices and constraints. Scientific evidence reveals that slower, strategic transitions to adulthood can be beneficial and that family and other types of support are crucial in determining how young people fare in the United States.
NJ The Crisis of Connection for Adolescent BoysThe U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health, in collaboration with the Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs and New York University Professor of Developmental Psychology Niobe Way developed a video and two discussion guides about the crisis of connection, its impact on the health and well-being of adolescent boys, and the implications for supporting teens.    After conducting hundreds of interviews focused on friendships with black, Latino, white, and Asian American adolescent boys over the past 25 years, Dr. Way concludes that boys are experiencing a “crisis of connection.” Boys report feeling pressure to “man up” and fear that having or even expressing their desires for close male friendships will make them look “girly” or “gay.” Boys, in early and middle adolescence, often have intimate male friendships and explicitly link these relationships to their mental health. Yet, by late adolescence, boys speak about losing these close male friendships and reveal feelings of loneliness and isolation. Given the research that links friendships with mental and physical health and well-being, Way’s research has profound implications for adults who work with adolescents. Way shows us the dangers of assuming that boys don’t want or need close male friendships and urges us to foster the positive friendships of adolescent boys to help them thrive.
