August is Connected Educator Month
Throughout the month of August there are a numerous activities, discussions, keynote addresses, panel discussions, webinars, book groups, etc… to participate in.
I have had the opportunity to attend a few of these worthwhile events over the past couple of days:
#Genius Hour Chat on Twitter (I was impressed by the number of SD#36 teachers who were participating and contributing to the discussion on this topic).
Over the next few days, I am looking forward to:
Jane Krauss and Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach
This list could go on and on. There are so many fabulous sessions and activities planned.
If you see an event that you have missed, or are not able to attend, not to worry. All webinars, keynotes, and discussions will be archived so you can see them after the fact. I am grateful for this option because I know, with three kids, I will be busy with them during the day so will view some of the archived sessions in the evenings after they go to bed. It does take a bit of time to get the recordings archived, but you will be able to find them here, when they are completed.
You can follow the Connected Educators Month on Twitter as well, looking for #ce12.

I wish you all the best during this fabulous month of opportunities.
