October is Connected Educator Month
Many schools, districts, and states don’t recognize the enormous benefits of online communities and learning networks, prompting the U.S. Department of Education to convene the first Connected Educator Month in August 2012. The DOE has called together a second Connected Educator Month, to be held in October. This year’s event will have a special emphasis on helping districts promote and integrate online social learning in their formal professional development.
