As a curriculum specialist, I have been a supporter of technology integration and looking for ways for teachers to enhance their lessons with technology. I think that being a life-long learner and always trying to maintain the quality of our kiddos education is very important. I would love the chance to win a copy of THE Connected Educator.
I’m a new principal and could use all the help I can get in leading my campus into technology integration!
As a new and young teacher I am really excited to see how technology integration will be used in education and I want to be apart of the change! Just started blogging as an educator the other day…
As I have spent this week catching up on professional reading, I am so much more aware of how far behind many of us are with technology in the classroom. Unfortunately it’s been easy to let simmer on the back burner and allow teachers to only do what they are comfortable with, but no more! In my first year as a principal this book would be a great way to kick us into action for 2012.
I’m looking forward to making that shift in 2012. There is so much out there, sometimes it’s difficult to know where to begin. The “where to begin” has been holding me back from the “when to begin.” The new semester in 2012 will be my “when.”
Whether you’re a teacher, principal or coach, you’re not alone in taking on the challenge to “make the shift.” Read the stories of other educators who are transforming their practice at PLP’s Voices from the Learning Revolution blog.

Happy New Year!
As someone who uses web 2.0 tools as much as I can get away with I am eager to discover more ways to integrate technology into the learning space.
I have used bogging with great success in 1st and 2nd grades with poetry. The site, poemasabijr.Blogspot.com, features over 100 poems from students. They loved it and the teachers and I had a great time making it happen.
i would love to learn more about networking and sharing with other professionals.
Looking forward to learning a lot from you both in the new year!
I am eager to continue learning how to use social media and digital tools to make education better for all students and for all educators. Here’s to 2012 being the “tipping point” for genuine and powerful shifts in how we work together to remake a strong K – 12 education system!
The old saying, “two heads are better than one” exemplifies the power of personl learning networks. I am a teacher who yearns to learn so that I may inspire my students to commit to learning. The best way to learn is by connecting with and through others…here’s to connecting, learning, and thriving in 2012!
As Technology Facilitator, I collaborate daily with students, teachers, and instructional staff to develop curriculum materials and specific lesson plans that take advantage of the benefits offered by educational technology. I would love to have a copy of your book to use in my school! Thanks and Happy New Year!
As the Director of School Improvement and Professional Development I know how important it is to help educators understand and use technology to engage their learners. I resolve to connect my three county region in Northern Ohio if I win this giveaway!
Thanks for the opportunity to get a book to increase my knowledge in this area.
Thanks for the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of being a connected educator. Being in a global teachers’ room with open doors 24/7 is an opportunity not to be missed.
I appreciate the chance to vie for The Connected Educator! I’m responsible for helping other teachers make the shift and I know this will be an invaluable resource!
