October is Connected Educator Month!
Helping Educators Thrive in a Connected World.
edWeb.net is a partner of Connected Educator Month, helping educators engage in online professional development all of October, and all year long!
Millions of educators and others around the world have participated in hundreds of professional development opportunities as part of Connected Educator Month (CEM) the past three years. Originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education and its partners as part of the Connected Educators initiative, CEM offers highly distributed, diverse, and engaging activities to educators at all levels. Based on its success last year, the initiative is poised to reach even more educators in 2015, through expanded partnerships and enhanced programming.
Highlights of CEM 2014 included:
- hosted 800 events during the month,
- mentioned on 6 million web pages,
- reached educators in 139 countries and
- every two days counted 15 million tweets.
A celebration of community, with educators at all levels, from all disciplines, moving towards a fully connected and collaborative profession. Convened by the connected education community, with the full support of the U.S. Department of Education, building on the success of previous years with hundreds of new events and activities from dozens of organizations and communities. We’ll be working together, in October and beyond, with all stakeholders, leaving no device unturned, no country or learning environment unexplored. Get involved at connectededucators.org.
