The U.S. Department of Education declared August Connected Educator Month (CEM), and more than 140 of the nation’s leading education organizations, communities, and companies (including Cisco) have come together to celebration and explore the power of professional online communities to advance the field of education. Throughout the month, educators have been participating in 400+ webinars, guided tours, live chats and forums, as well as blogging and tweeting using the #ce12 hashtag, to explore how online communities can enable educators to take control of their own professional development
Through the Connected Learning Exchange, Cisco provides an online community of educators from schools, colleges and universities to foster collaboration and showcase innovative and practical strategies that can dramatically improve education everywhere. We are also pleased to host, via WebEx, seven of the concluding CEM webcasts on August 30th and 31st, on a range of important topics including Personalized Learning, Teacher Led Change, 21st Century PD and the concluding session on Connected Educator Month: What We’ve Learned. Descriptions and registration links are included below.
Please also check the CEM calendar and continue to participate in all of the remaining CEM activities.
