One of our main goals at Powerful Learning Practice is to turn educators into 21st Century educators. That is, teach them how to use social media and other powerful Web 2.0 tools to transform their classrooms into learning environments that are ready for today’s iGeneration students. One of the most common questions we get is, “But where do we find the time to use all this new technology?” To answer that question, we developed this infographic – A Day in the Life of a Connected Educator to show that using social media in your classroom and in your life can be integrated, easy, and fun.

Connected Educator Month - Day in the life of a Connected Educator

Get connected

Would you like to become a connected educator? We’ve designed an entire year of professional learning that will take you from “What is 21st Century learning and why is it important?” to “How do I create a 21st Century classroom or school?” If you want to become a 21st century educator — and prepare iGeneration students for an exciting but unpredictable future — you first have to become a 21st century learner. That’s right. The “connected learner” is YOU. Learn more about our Connected Learner Experience and join over 5,000 other educators who have taken their classrooms into the 21st century.
