How are YOU celebrating #ce16?
Getting More Involved

Connected Educator Month 2016 is off to a great start! Excitement is buzzing–on and offline. We are happy to reconnect with our amazing tribe of #ce16 supporters. 

#ce16 in Pictures
We want to see how you’re celebrating #ce16! Take a quick photo (or video), which illustrates your participation, and share on Twitter, using the #ce16 hashtag. Feel free to get creative. 

Event Calendar
Thanks to all who have added their events to the #ce16 calendar. Please keep in mind that we check the system once daily and upload new submissions at that time, so you may not see your event immediately. It’s never too late to include your activity though, so keep them coming! We hope that you will help us to make #ce16 super special by adding your events here.

This effort would not be possible with our generous #ce16 sponsors! If you would like to discuss ways in which you and your organization can support the cause, send us an email. We look forward to discussing partnership opportunities.
