This month educators and schools leaders are taking the first step into becoming connected learners and tech-savvy educators.  Participants of Powerful Learning Practice’s Connected Learner Experience will not regret their journey into creating a networked landscape of learning challenges that re-envision what is done in their classrooms and schools.  As participants work hard this year as change agents for their students and schools, they also have the opportunity to reap one additional reward. This year educators and school leaders may acquire professional development graduate credits through The University of North Dakota.  For each semester of our Connected Learner Experience, participants may receive four credits.  The cost for the credit is only $200 per semester. For more information on how to earn credit for our Connected Learner Experience click here.

Pressed for time?

Are you still not sure about taking that first step into shifting your educational practices for a full year?  Powerful Learning Practice has created a new eCourse, entitled PLP Lite.  This 12-week eCourse 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 joined us for Connected Educator Month, you’re going to love this extended learning experience. Take what you learned during the month of August even further and learn how to bring Web 2.0 tools and connected learning into your classroom every day.  For more information or to register now, click here.

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.
