Connected Educators: Helping Educators Thrive in a Connected World
A big new initiative to “break the code of silence” on all the great work you’re doing gets underway (stop being so modest–too much modesty is annoying!), it’s the last week of the worldwide ‘World’s Largest Lesson’ competition, nominations are now open for the DILAs, and we encourage everyone to join us for the Education On Air free online conference May 8-9.  Thanks, as always, for your continuing support of Google For Education, our first CEM 2015 sponsor, which is providing free tools and support here
Featured Connected Educator Month Supporter
Google: You’re invited to Education on Air

How do we prepare today’s students for tomorrow? Join the discussion at Education on Air, a free online conference from Google May 8-9. On day one, tune in for panels and keynotes from speakers like LeVar Burton & Michael Fullan, OC. On day two, join some of the over 100 practical educator-led workshops.

Features Events & Activities
NAESP/NASSP/AASA/NEA/PTA/Nat Geo et al: Breaking The Code Of Silence
BAM Radio is bringing together a coalition of great organizations to ask this basic question: How would education change if everybody really knew what teachers, principals, all school staff and students are doing daily? The exceptional commitment, extraordinary contributions and innovative collaborations among educators are generally hidden because a culture of humility has created a climate of silence.

It’s time for that to come to an end–take a moment to nominate an educator (teacher, principal, superintendent, school nurse, engaged parent, school librarian, custodian or other staff member) who has been doing extraordinary work in your community (including yourself!) and put the “Breaking The Code of Silence” video on your website to help build momentum for the campaign…

TES/BBC/NBC/UNICEF et al: World’s Largest Lesson

Oppi Festival
May 15-16, Oppi Festival, New York City.  We know not everyone is in hailing distance of the Big Apple, but are guessing more of us can join the fun and learning than last year (when it was in Helsinki!).  And if you can’t, we’ll be sharing other ways to participate.

Like CEM, Oppi is a not-for-profit global learning event that is built around bringing together ALL education stakeholders–educators, young people, policy makers, business, charity and cultural leaders, start-ups, parents, academics and more.  The line-up and program are packed FULL of inspiring headline speakers and leaders (many also involved in CEM–be sure to scroll down), workshops, expos, doing, making, performing, playing–and surprises. Huffington Post on last year’s event: “You know you’ve had a life changing face-to-face experience when you want to share the learning with everyone who missed out…”

EdSurge/Digital Promise: DILA Awards
EdSurge and Digital Promise, both long-time CEM core organizations, are proud to announce that as of April 23, they’re taking nominations for the second annual Digital Innovation in Learning Awards (DILA). Educators, administrators, and organizations are encouraged to submit videos that showcase how they support teaching and learning. Winners will be selected in 15 categories, including five new awards introduced this year, and hosted at a gala celebration in Silicon Valley. Digital Promise will also share their inspiring videos with the world. Check out last year’s winning video submissions here.

A highlight of CEM 2013 was Webby award-winner Open IDEO’s massively collaborative project to identify ways to help young people cultivate their creative confidence.  Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project, including the many who contributed just by being there to support the ideas you liked–we know every minute of an educator’s time is precious…

Getting More Involved
We’re heavily into fundraising mode right now so that we can support CEM 2015 participating organizations and educators around the world better than ever before.

But that doesn’t mean every sponsorship is heavy–check out our proverbial Chinese menu (with all respect and admiration to our Chinese participants)–you’ll see, for example, that the cost to sponsor one of our newsletters (like Google is doing now) is pretty nominal (be sure to scroll all the way down).  And we’re so confident in our ability to help you with outreach that we guarantee we’ll get you the average CPC (cost per click) in education or better, or we’ll keep running your promotions until we do.  We know your creativity can’t be in better hands than the connected educator community.

Thanks, as always, for everything you’ve done and are doing to make CEM a success
