I love the idea of a month devoted to encouraging teachers all around the world to connect, learn, and grow as educators!
Here is a short description of the event provided by the organizers at connectededucators.org:
“Connected Educator Month: Those who do, teach. Own it, worldwide. October 2014.
A celebration of community, with educators at all levels, from all disciplines, moving towards a fully connected and collaborative profession. Convened by the connected education community, with the full support of the U.S. Department of Education, building on the success of previous years with hundreds of new events and activities from dozens of organizations and communities. We’ll be working together, in October and beyond, with all stakeholders, leaving no device unturned, no country or learning environment unexplored. Get involved at connectededucators.org.”
I just found out about it yesterday so I can’t wait to see what is out there. I am passionate about international teaching so I truly hope that the goal of more international collaboration will be achieved.
Did you participate in the Connected Educator month last year? Will you join this year?
