Starting on April 14th, I’ll be leading a three part webinar series offered by Heinemann. Here is the brief description of each of the part:
- Tuesday, April 14, 2015 Session 1 from 4:00-5:15 pm:
Participants will learn how connected educators empower their students’ learning. Witness stories and examples from classrooms around the country and learn how these educators are making learning meaningful for their students every day.
- Tuesday, April 21, 2015 Session 2 from 4:00-5:15 pm:
Participants will learn about the various social media tools and online communities that are fostering teacher engagement and collaboration. In this session, we will also brainstorm ways we can engage our school community, parents, and students through these channels.
- Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Session 3 from 4:00-5:15 pm:
Participants will have a chance to form their connected learning plan and think about the ways they can take what they have learned in this webinar and apply it to the rest of the school year. They will also receive guidance and support with identifying specific communities of interest to join after the webinar is over.
My ultimate hope that through this webinar, we will build another online network of support for one and other and the participants in these webinar sessions will stay connected long after the series is over. Instead of just talking about the benefits of having a robust network of colleagues to tap into, some of the participants might even start their own local face-to-face or online networks for colleagues in their schools or districts. Ultimately, the goal is to apply all of this work to improving our students’ learning experience. To bring the joy, passion, and curiosity that we hope that all our students would embody. I hope you’ll join in and if you’d like more information, you can find it here. Thanks and hope to see you soon! Let’s have some fun together this April.
