Connected Educator Month Day 2 & 3 Schedules

Yesterday was the first day of Connected Educator Month and all day long there were kick off activities, including an evening keynote session with Chris Lehmann, who gave the keynote from a friend’s apartment in New York.  Connected Educator Month is about community.  The events shared this month should be participatory, you shouldn’t just sit back and soak up the information, get involved, join the discussions.

The activities continue today and tomorrow.  Below you’ll find the schedule for Days 2 and 3 of Connected Educator Month.
