What is your definition of a connected educator? I’m still working on mine ! But I do know this: If it weren’t for Classroom 2.0, I would not be a connected educator. I thank Steve Hargadon, the 68,000 members there, and Lorna and Peggy and Kim at Classroom 20 LIve for guiding me into a network that supports and encourages new learners to ease their journey to connectedness. I learned not only what tools to use in my classroom, but also how to use them. I learned to connect and participate. My students learned to create and connect with other students. It’s been an amazing journey.
Because of this, Denise Krebs, of my PLN, and I are presenting at Connected Educator Month on August 18th at 1:00 PM EST: Extend the Conversation: Jump In ! Our presentation includes an extended segment about Classroom 20 and Classroom 20 live and their inspiration for me and my students.
We are using Big Blue Button, a platform we’ve never used, which shows just how much we have learned to Jump In! because of our supportive network.
Thanks Steve and CR20 and CR 20 LIVE ! Just thought you would like to know…
