    Abstract
    At the beginning of the pandemic, the education world scrambled to transition into digital instruction. Educators were flooded with Apps, Widgets, platforms, and tips from commercial companies and peers. Many educators were overwhelmed while finding their way through the information and distinguishing between valuable tools and those not beneficial for their context. At the same time, the traditional sources of professional learning changed. Professional conventions and conferences did not take place. Instead, social media were flooded with events that often offered no professional learning value. As we are now closer to the end of the pandemic, the disrupted education profession must define what the professional future will look like. In this session, participants will reflect on how the intersection of technology and education may move forward and how professionalism may look in our discipline.
