Resources for Connected Educators

connectedtree-200795_1280

Two years ago, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced Connected Educator Month, a celebration of technology and social media in education.

According to Connectededucators.org, the goals of CEM include:

  • Getting more educators proficient with social media to improve their practice 
  • Deepening and sustaining learning among those already enjoying connection’s benefits 
  • Helping schools credential/integrate connected learning into their formal professional development efforts 
  • Stimulating and supporting innovation in the field

Be sure to check out the online calendar, which includes workshops, Twitter chats, conferences, and more—all relating to technology in education!

And now, we’d like to feature just a few of our favorite resources for connected educators. We’ll post excerpts from several of these books in the coming weeks.

Happy Connected Educator Month!
