Here in New England, October is a beautiful month where we start to see the change from summer to fall with the beautiful foliage. October also provides educators across the globe opportunties for tremendous change professionally due to the fact that it is Connected Educator Month. As school leaders, we need to promote and model the actions of a connected educator if we have expectations for our teachers to utilize technological resources in their work with students. There is no doubt in my mind that students who are shown how to take advantage of the latest tools to learn, network, and solve problems will have a distinct advantage over those who are left to figure it out on their own.
With this in mind, I am happy to announce that the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the National Association of Elementary School Principals has teamed up to offer a series of Twitter chats on Monday nights at #CPChat throughout the month of October to help promote Connected Educator Month and National Principals Month.
Tonight’s topic will focus on how school leaders can create a connected learning community! So please join us at #CPChat tonight and mark your calendar for each of the following Mondays in October at 9 p.m. EST:
- Monday, October 12
- Monday, October 19
- Monday, October 26
School leaders need to advantage of this opportunity to connect with their colleagues around the globe!
