I got promotional material (see below) on a free webinar. I think this sums up why I get excited about ideas I get online from people I don't know and will probably never meet. - ----------------------- Being a Connected Educator
Tuesday, April 29th at 5pm ET REGISTER HERE
?I have learned more being on Twitter in six months than in two years of graduate school.?
?The connections I?ve made because I am online are crucial to my success in the classroom.?
?I don?t know what I did before I was connected!?
These are statements we hear every day. Educators from around the world, marveling at the fact that they are connected and those connections carry a great deal of value to them professionally and personally.
Historically, collaboration took place when two or more individuals occupied the same space at the same time and exchanged and revised ideas. It has often been said, "In a room full of smart people, the smartest person is the room"! With the technology at hand today, there are no boundaries of time or space with collaboration. The ability we have to connect and work collaboratively, anytime from anywhere, has moved collaboration from a limited mode of learning to a more prominent position. The technology we use for connecting people digitally and virtually through various applications for connections has given collaboration through technology the label of ?connected learning?.
Join us for this webinar, when Tom Whitby and Steven Anderson ? two of the most prolific users of social media ? will discuss what it means to be a connected educator and how being connected empowers educators to do more and learn more. - ----- Richard
