Simba Information and MCH Strategic Data Host Webinar "Pre-K12 Professional Development Market Forecast 2012-2013"

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - MCH Strategic Data and Simba Information will host an insightful free webinar on October 24 at 1:00PM EDT about the current status and future potential of professional development for PreK-12 educators. This one-hour webinar will teach marketers how professional development will be affected by the implementation of Common Core State Standards, new teacher-evaluation and accountability programs and the integration of technology into the learning process.

Kathy Mickey, Senior Analyst and Managing Editor of the Education Group at Simba Information, will present an overview of the professional development survey including market size, current spending, projected growth, major funding sources, and trends on district implementation.

Plus, Ruth Paine, Distance Learning Specialist for the Clay County School District, will share her efforts in facilitating the delivery of professional development at the Teacher Training Center (TTC) and the Clay Virtual Academy (CVA). Ruth will also be discussing how her district is leaning away from face-to-face training and towards online collaborative professional development by making use of Blackboard Collaborate.

John Hood, President of MCH Strategic Data, will serve as co-presenter of the webinar. "MCH is proud to partner with Simba Information to educate marketers on the increasing demand for professional development, as well as to serve as their marketing resource to assist them in discovering new ways to extend their reach and generate increased response to their marketing campaigns."
