Why is it essential that educators be connected? How can collaborating using social media empower your teaching practice? In this edWeb webinar hosted by the Digital Classroom: Teaching with Tech community and presented by Steven Anderson and Tom Whitby, we learned how to be a relevant educator. Participants interacted with questions and discussion around the eight tenets of being a relevant connected educator with examples of how to best leverage social media like Twitter, Hangouts, and more. Steven and Tom discussed principles from their recent book, The Relevant Educator: How Connectedness Empowers Learning, from the Connected Educators Series. This interactive webinar was helpful for teachers, tech coordinators, library/media specialists, and administrators interested in being more connected.
