The post below is actually a copy of an e-mail that I sent our teachers today to continue to promote our Burlington Public Schools Blog which shares the great work going on across our school district. It is the fifth post in a series that I will continue throughout the school year.
As we hit the first full week of October, I am wondering how many people are aware that it is Connected Educators Month. For the third year in a row, the United States Department of Education and a number of partner organizations have deemed October Connected Educator Month. You can learn more at theConnected Educator Month website. The home page lists a daily schedule of events that teachers can take part in to connect with colleagues from around the world, including a number of Twitter Chats on different topics.
If you would like to bundle an hour from a Connected Educator Month Twitter Chat with other technology PD options (i.e. How Do I Do That Sessions or our Burlington 1:1 Conference) to earn inservice credits then we would welcome that. If you need support on getting started with Twitter please connect with one of our district IT Staff. Our two Mobile Learning Coaches, Jenn Scheffer and Diana Marcus, each have online schedules so that you can book them at your convenience. Please let me know if you have any questions
