August Will Be “Connected Educator Month”

This item came across my desk in late June. U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan is declaring the entire month of August as “Connected Educator Month.” The idea is to get educators talking and learning about using technology and the Internet and sharing creative ways to connect their learners to the classroom via technology.

The site below discusses more about the intent of Connected Educator Month. Take a few minutes to read the announcement and how to become involved, whether through online forums or professional development or personal development.
