Free, connected professional learning


October is Connected Educator Month, a global initiative designed to support and promote networked approaches to educational professional learning. Leaders and teachers are invited to engage in this month-long event from October 1, 2014. Thousands of educators, in NZ and beyond, will be connected to free professional learning events, communities and resources, regional, national, and global workshops, keynotes, panels, discussions and more. 

The goals of Connected Educator Month include:

  • Getting more educators proficient with social media to improve their practice
  • Deepening and sustaining learning among those already enjoying connection’s benefits
  • Helping schools credential/integrate connected learning into their formal professional learning 
  • Stimulating and supporting innovation.
