What better way to commence Connected Educator Month (CEM), starting Oct. 1st, then to connect educators across the country to discuss topics most relevant to education today?

In an effort to highlight topics many educators say are critical to 21st century learning, Connected Educators highlighted six kick-off panels (three on Oct. 1st and three on Oct. 2nd) to get the virtual ball rolling on topics such as integrating formal and informal professional development, classroom management for the connected (think BYOD) classroom, and what it means to be a connected leader.

The six kick-off panels are based on topics connected educators can’t miss, especially due to some of the high-profile speakers, including Scott McLeod, Yong Zhao, Tom Carroll, to name a few. But there are also many other panels taking place during the first few days of Connected Educator Month, as well as throughout the month.
