By now, you’ve probably heard about our groundbreaking professional learning journeyThe Connected Learner Experience. It’s a year’s worth of job-embedded professional development based around social media, the transformative power of the Web, and networked collaboration. We’ve worked with over 5,000 other educators  just like you, and helped them shift their classrooms into connected, global classrooms in our few months together.

The Connected Learner Experience

We want to let you know that our Connected Learner Experience is at its’ lowest price ever for our early bird registrants. But that price isn’t going to last long. In just one week, we’ll be raising our prices and shutting down the early bird registration. We want to make sure you get in under the deadline, and so we’re writing to personally invite you to take part in our Connected Learner Experience – whether individually, in a team, or schoolwide.

How much will I save? What if I’m not satisfied?

save moneySave $250 on an individual pass or $1,000 on a school team passwhen you sign up before June 1. Don’t wait and kick yourself for missing this early bird deadline!

Best of all, we are offering a no risk, money back guarantee. At the end of the year, if you have been a full participant in the Connected Educator Experience, but feel that your teaching and learning haven’t shifted and you don’t feel connected as part of a global community of educators, we will refund 100% of your money.

Why should I care about being a Connected Learner or Educator?

The world is changing and you as an educator need to change with it, for the sake of your iGeneration students.

  • New and emerging Web technologies are connecting our children in ways never before possible. Through blogs, social networking sites, multimedia and other Web 2.0 tools, their world is becoming more and more networked and participatory.
  • Your students spend time every day in virtual environments that are highly engaging and encourage creative thinking and problem solving. They frequently participate in games and social media where they routinely acquire and apply knowledge and collaborate with “colleagues.”
  • And then these digital natives enter our classroom spaces. Is the transition seamless? Or is it more like time travel — a leap back into yesteryear?
Our most important message is always this: If you want to become a 21st century educator, you first have to become a 21st century learner. PLP’s Connected Learner Experience will show your teachers how to become self-actualized professionals who can leverage personal learning networks and a dynamic, collaborative online community to become confident and effective 21st century educators.

Renee Hawkins“The life of a Technology Coordinator can be a pretty lonely experience. I speak a language only a small number of people understand; few people want to buy what I’m selling. At least it seems so much of the time. That’s why the Powerful Learning Practice has become so important to me both personally and professionally. Contrary to the popular myth that the internet has weakened social connections, I have found my professional family with the individuals I have met through this organization. I share, I learn, and I grow with with teachers from all over the world.” – Renee Hawkins, Garrison Forest School, Maryland

Without a doubt, this was the most life changing professional development experience of my 23+ years in teaching. This professional development embodies what we now know about professional learning: it must be job-embedded, long-term, community-driven, passion-based and leverage digital technologies to bridge the gaps of space and time. All professional development should be based off the PLP model.” – Cary Harrod, Forest Hills School, Ohio
