Read This: Connecting Educators and Students

I’ve made myself all kinds of paper, post-it, and digital notes to participate as much as possible in this year’s Connected Educator Month (CEM) activities (which kick off tomorrow).

I’m especially interested in the “Student Agency, Student Voice” thread. Here’s the teaser:

First Theme Kick Off: Student Agency, Student Voice

Panelists will include Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, Paul Oh, Laura Bradley, Kim Douillard, Jo Paraiso, and special guests, including you!  Reserve your seat (and/or get a link to the archive if you can’t make it) today…

My personal goals this year are to get at least ONE of the reticient colleagues on my campus to become a connected educator and to expand my own personal learning network to include more educators from outside the U.S.

You in?
