Connected Educator Month is coming to an end, and we want to know how you, your views, and your thoughts on connected learning have changed and grown this month.
Now that you’ve spent almost a month becoming a connected learner and a connected educator, you may have formed your own ideas about what connected learning is, and what “makes” a connected educator. At least, we hope you’ve been thinking about it!
Is it how many tools he knows how to use? How many friends she has on Facebook or followers she has on Twitter? How well he’s known around the internet? Does she have to be connected 24/7? Does he have to bring Web 2.0 tools into the classroom?
What do you think?
Leave a comment and answer the question: What “makes” a connected educator?
We’ll retweet some of the best responses, so sign the comment with your Twitter handle, if you have one!
