Welcome back to the Connected Educators initiative, funded by the US Department of Education.  You’ll be hearing from us a lot more regularly than you have in the last month or two (and hopefully as much as you’d like to) as we head towards what we hope will be another great Connected Educator Month…

CEM Archives Released
The Connected Educator Month 2012 Archives have been officially released, with nearly one hundred recordings, transcripts, and other professional development resources to date from CEM 2012, searchable by format, audience, and topic.

P.S. If you held an event or activity during CEM 2012 that’s not yet part of the archive, and you want it to be, please send it to us using this form.

Getting More Involved: New CEM Formats
One of the recommendations in our recently released CEM Report was the development or use of a greater variety of formats for CEM activities, in future CEM-type events.  Are there types of events and activities you’d like to see more of (or at all) in a CEM 2013 than you saw in 2012?  Let us know…
