It’s Connected Educator Month (CEM) and the goal behind Chad’s Choices is very similar to that of CEM – connect educators to each other, ideas, and resources. With that being said, enjoy this week’s post. One more thing, I’m adding a new section – Tweet from the Community. I’m going to share a tweet from a DEN STAR that I thought was neat. I don’t know what it’s going to look like from week to week, but it might be a funny quote, something that made me think, or just a simple statement. We’ll see.
By the way, if you’re not familiar with Chad’s Choices from the Community, where have you been? This series is designed to highlight the DEN Community in a variety of ways. You’ll find a few blog posts and resources that were shared by a DEN member on Twitter. Keep in mind, while others may have also shared the same post/article, I saw it posted by the person I’m noting below. Forgive me if I’m not giving credit to the person who first posted it. In addition, you’ll find a few blogs by DEN members and members from community to follow on Twitter. Some of the people listed are veteran DEN members while others are new to the community. Lastly, I’d like to share a DEN Person of Interest.

Remember that book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” … that’s kinda like what joining Twitter is for an educator. #hcspdl
