Celebrate Connected Educator Month
NCTAF joins the US Department of Education and more than 60 major education organizations to celebrate Connected Educator Month in August. Through a series of forums, webinars, book groups, tours, open houses, contests, and challenges, Connected Educator Month is an opportunity for educators at all levels and from all disciplines to work towards a fully connected and collaborative profession.
NCTAF has been working for nearly two decades to promote greater collaboration in education, and views technology as the ultimate connector. Through our Teachers Learning in Networked Communities (TLINC®) projects, NCTAF is able to showcase how online communities and emerging technologies, including 3G-enabled smartphones and tablets, can connect teachers and student teachers with high-quality learning opportunities and with each other. Such efforts increase teachers’ readiness to enter the profession and provide the professional support they need to stay in teaching.
Whether you’re an education policy wonk, a new teacher looking for some tips for managing your fourth graders, or an experienced veteran seeking fresh ideas for incorporating new technologies into your time-tested lessons on Shakespeare, there will be events relevant for you. Sign up (in seconds) to participate. August is Connected Educator Month, a time when the thinkers and doers in the field meet.
