August is Connected Educator Month (CEM) and if you’re looking for ways to become more knowledgeable, more connected, and simply learn more, this is the time – every day, for free, online. Throughout the month, there will be activities and presentations for you on a variety of topics. The DEN is participating in CEM with a series of webinars each week titled “The Collective Brain.” Learn about great resources and sites, as well as tips and tricks from the DEN Community during these one hour webinars.
The fantastic educators at Powerful Learning Practice have put together a Connected Educator Starter Kit. This 40 page pdf gives a little background about Connected Educator Month as well as daily activities to improving your learning. This guide is separated into 31 days worth of online activities (one for each day during the month of August) to get you started or keep you going on your journey as a connected educator and learner. This is a great resource to get you started!
