Conversation around the connected educator month has largely been that it is the same educators connecting. How can we get more people connecting?
Connected Educators Collaboration Challenge
What Will You Do?
If you take the challenge, you'll be assigned to a team to write about one of the many ways that educators can collaborate. You'll have a week to work with your partners and write the most up to date information about how you can connect. This is being modeled after theK12 Online 2006 wiki project where Julie Lindsay (@julielindsay) and Vicki Davis (@coolcatteacher) met and after the innovative, grassroots practices and work ethic shared by Taking IT Global and the Flat Classroom Projects. We'll host a connection celebration where we share what we've learned and recognize excellence.
Kickoff: August 16 4:30 – 5:30 pm EDT (CEM info online for meeting location)
Dates for Editing: August 16-August 23, 2012
Celebration: August 30 4:30 – 5:30pm EDT
This is part of Connected Educator Month Celebration for August 2012 and any educator can join in! The first step to “flatten” your classroom (as shared inFlattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds) is to CONNECTyourself. Flat Classroom® and TakingITGlobal are two organizations who are passionate about helping educators connect with each other!
