Many of us have shifted to teaching and learning with our students in online spaces as remote, distant, and/or hybrid learners, but in reality we aren’t distant or remote at all. Rather, we are close and connected as we work together to figure out all that is changing around us. Connected learners are empowered remote and distant learners who understand how to build relationships, reflect deeply, and learn together online. In this session, we’ll talk about the key dispositions and values of a connected learner, why you need to own them now, and how your students can’t live out their future without them.

In the Connected Educator Dispositions graphic below, each of the underlined areas are linked to a video that explains each of these dispositions and values of the connected educator or connected learner. Click on them to learn more about each one. Create classrooms communities that incorporate these values as you nurture the connected learners you are teaching!
