The State of Oregon is undergoing massive standards-based school reform. This has created immediate and wide spread professional development demands. We have piloted an on-line professional development environment that targets probability and statistics standards and is designed to meet these demands in a scalable and cost effective fashion. The environment is called probability park and consists of four parts: a communication center, a set of learning modules for teaching content, a resource room of classroom activities, and a verification institute that takes teachers through the process of judging collections of student work against criterion-referenced standards. This paper describes the structure of probability park both pedagogically and technologically. We show how we used specific technologies to achieve desired pedagogic ends.
