A “Connected Educators Month” in the United States — the rapid rise of Twitter PD — the coming of age of the Personal Learning Network. No question: It’s been an historic year for connected professionals, including PLP’s extended family of teacher and school leaders. Here’s just one example: the Top 13 Most-Read Posts by our Voices from the Learning Revolution group bloggers for the year just past. Each article listed here scored more than 4,000 pageviews during 2012. Now’s a great time to read (or re-read) them, as you resolve to connect and make a difference in 2013!
Among other work, Getting Smart is helping raise the voices of classroom teachers and school leaders (including several PLPeeps) who are champions of student-centered, technology infused teaching and learning. We asked editorial director Sarah Cargill to tell us more about Getting Smart, its content and goals, and the kinds of writing they’re interested in publishing from “smart teachers.”
