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.

At Powerful Learning Practice, we’ve created a year-long, professional learning journey that takes educators and turns them back into learners first: The Connected Learner Experience. To celebrate the launch of our 2012-13 learning journey, we want to hear from you – What makes you a connected learner?
