Powerful Learning Practice (PLP) enjoyed celebrating Connected Educator Month (CEM) with fellow educators and organizations during the month of August.  Although, the official end of CEM is here, we encourage everyone to continue the learning, celebrations and being connected with one another.

Over the past month, there was an abundance of FREE webinars, twitter chats, book studies and more.  Individuals, schools and organizations used the official Twitter #CE12 hashtag to announce their activities, webinars, chats, share materials, and discuss what it meant to be a Connected Educator. We loved hearing new and experienced voices share their ideas, experiences, fears and inspirations throughout the month.  But now that Connected Educator Month has ended, how do you keep the momentum moving forward?

Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach (PLP cofounder and CEO) is often heard saying:

None of us is as good or as smart as all of us. If we can embrace that idea, we can shift our schools and help our students become powerful learners for a lifetime.”

This year, PLP challenges educators to be different, think outside the box and continue to being a connected learner with your students. So how can you stay connected and learn with others from across the globe?  Here’s a few ideas:

1. Join us for PLP Live – Inspire. Collaborate. Shift. on September 28, in Philadelphia, PA.
PLP Live 2012 - Inspire. Collaborate. Shift.

2.Participate in PLP’s Connected Learner Experience


3. Take an eCourse from PLP (new courses added throughout the year) 

4. Follow Powerful Learning Practice on Twitter

She enjoyed collaborating with staff and creating technology lessons that engaged students, but caught “the bug” for presenting to educators on a national level. For eleven years, Christen trained educators both face-to-face and virtually with Verizon Thinkfinity. She also served as their Distance Learning Coordinator and Vice President of Professional Development. Christen has enjoyed working with Powerful Learning Practice since 2011 and continuing her work with educators, parents and students alike.
