NSD Connected Learners

By Sheri Edwards | How do we connect online? Links for colleagues and my PLN. Don’t miss your chance! Teachers now have access to free quality professional development via current online technologies. Experience this live with thousands of educators from around the globe by listening to the 4th annual Reform Symposium Online Conference, RSCON, which took place October 11th to 13th in conjunction with Connected Educator Month. You can still attend this free online conference from anywhere that has Internet access by viewing the recordings. I've created this Flipboard Magazine to include links to the recordings and other information on Connected Educator Month sponsored by th pe DOE. And I've also linked to how to start blogging by Sue Waters. If you are a teacher at our school, please ask how to start — our platform is Blogger and our naming protocol is nsdyourlastname. Just log in to Blogger with your usual username and password and click: Create my blog. A few of you have started. See me if you aren’t sure. Enjoy learning about Connected Educator month.
