It’s here… welcome to #ce16!
Getting More Involved

The long-awaited Connected Educator Month 2016has arrived. We are excited to launch into our fifth year of celebrating connected learning online. Over the past four years, millions of educators and others around the world have participated in hundreds of professional development and other educational opportunities, offering highly distributed, diverse, and engaging activities to all stakeholders at all levels.

Event Calendar
As has been the trend in years past, our #ce16 calendar is off to a slow start but not to worry! It fills up fast. Don’t forget that it is a crowdsourced effort so help us by adding your events here

We are still looking for sponsors for CEM 16. We offer a variety of packages as well as custom options so if you are interested in helping to sponsor an event,send us an email for more information.

Connected Educator Month Resources
Want to show your support for Connected Educator Month and what it stands for? Want to encourage other educators to come join the discussions, the explorations, and the fun? Or maybe you just to let others know that when people talk about “connected educators,” that means you or your organization. In the supporter toolkit, you’ll find a large collection of graphics, copy, and other promotional tools to help spread the word.
Featured Connected Educator Month Supporter
The Virginia Society for Technology in Education is sponsoring a number of CEM activities throughout October, including a slow tweet book group, which begins on October 3. Check out their event listing for more information.
